I am on a weeks workshop with artist Rebecca Crowell at Ballinglen Arts Foundation in Ballycastle County Mayo

http://www.ballinglenartsfoundation.org/

My work this week is very influenced by a fantastic day trip we made out to Ceide Feilds

This is a huge extensive neolithic site, where a network of over 50 miles of buried stone boundary walls have been identified from a farming community living on this coastline over 5,000 years ago. The individual rocks from here and around another landmark, Benwee head, and the intriguing plan of the layout of the walls have found their way onto the surface of these paintings
