Undying Love - Oil/Mixed Media on Block Canvas 36 x 12 inches
Undying Love – Oil based Mixed Media on Block Canvas 36 x 12 inches

I’m continuing to work away towards the launch of the Ideal Home Show this coming Friday.

Hectic but happy,  I thought I’d take some time out (by way of a little diversion) to tell you about the painting

“Undying Love”

Undying love side view Oil Painting Donna McGee

I have created many of these canvas flower paintings in the past.  So much so, that I have  similar paintings in my home as they hold  enchantment or magnetism that I am drawn to.

I had been commissioned to create some pieces for a business a long time ago.  Recently, I had the pleasure to see my paintings “in situ”

It was so pleasing to me to discover that the owner still loved the paintings all these years later.  They had taken on a life of their own and  become conversation pieces.

As an artist, there is nothing nicer than to get some positive feedback on where your paintings have travelled to and become a part of a new home or  business place.

It’s a   g-o-o-d   feeling!

I will have a selection of these paintings available at Ideal Home Show.

If you are in Dublin, come take a look and stop and chat for a while.

I’d love to see you.

Clifden Arts Trail

Delighted to have my work in the window of Hehirs of Clifden  at the

Clifden Arts Festival

A short while ago, I had the  absolute delight to catch the Regatta in  the very charming village of   Roundstone in the heart of Connemara.  Since then,  I have gone mad painting Galway Hooker fishing boats because they are so majestic, beautiful and strong.

Roundstone is on the west coast of Connemara an area of outstanding natural beauty and inspiration for many artists with hills, valleys and beautiful coastlines.

The Galway hooker is a traditional fishing boat used in Galway Bay off the west coast of Ireland. The hooker was developed for the strong seas there. It is identified by its sharp, clean entry, bluff bow, marked tumblehome and raked transom. Its sail plan consists of a single mast with a main sail and two foresails.

There are so many interesting  places to visit in Connemara, for example:

The rugged, glacially sculpted backdrop to Roundstone is the majestic mountain of Errisbeg, which rises to almost 1,000 feet. No visit to Connemara is ever complete without a visit to the harbour village of Roundstone. It is an ideal base from which to explore the wonderful ice-age scoured and lake-strewn Roundstone Bog. South of the village the crescent-shaped beaches of Gurteen and Dog’s Bay and their intervening tombolo draw thousands each summer.
