“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.

The winds will blow their own freshness into you,

and the storms their energy,

while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”

John Muir (1838 – 1914), Scotland / USA

The first walk of the new year through  Massey’s Wood, a recreation site,  along the Dublin Mountain Trail.  The ground was soft and the air was fresh.  I photographed this  scene with my  mobile  phone,  did some quick sketches, then launched myself into the painting.

Making it all affordable!

Tired of listening to all this talk of recession and budget restraints:

Here is what I have been doing:

The above are a selection of some of the  miniature paintings  I have been working on, all  inspired  from regular walks through  the Dublin and Wicklow mountain ranges, which are in easy reach of where I live.

They are all oil paintings  on canvas and range in price from €75 – €100 which I think makes buying original art affordable!

Cruagh Wood, Dublin Mountains

 

High up in the Dublin mountains, pockets of snow littered the landscape as the Spring sunshine and shrill winds competed with one another.  The harsh winter had been left behind and the only evidence remaining was the rush of  Spring water beating a track through the moss coated rocks, deep into the forest.
