big ones

I thought I would bring together some of my large works from the last few years, here in a post, and remind myself where they are now.

All these paintings are between 150 and 300cm long and up to 140cm deep. All were made on unstretched linen, stamped to my studio wall, then stretched afterwards, either here or at their destination after they were sold

This is ‘Tower’ just under 3m long. It was a huge challenge getting it out to its new home, by boat, onto a little island off Donegal

This is ‘Voyage’, about 100x190cm, shown at Mark Borghi Fine Art in New York, and placed with a client over there

Me with ‘Lugh’s Portal’ on the opening night of my show at MBFA last year. The painting is still there in their inventory

This is ‘Due West’ in my solo show of the same name two years ago at GreenFuse gallery in Westport. It’s home again now

My ‘poured’ paintings to go to Florida gallery!

So excited to be able to share that the 9 ‘poured’ paintings that I made in the last few days have ALL been requested by Mark Borghi Fine Art for his Palm Beach gallery in Florida

aaargh acrylics!

Trying to get a painterly, layered, rich, unfussy, not too ‘overworked looking’ effect with acrylics. Using a gloss gel medium. Applying with a squeegee. Layering by transferring onto and from baking paper. Very frustrating. Looking forward to getting back to my oils and cold wax medium in my studio at home!
