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 Lone Rider 14 x12 Oil on canvas

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.

House Event Continues – Last Day


House Art Loft

The House Event continues for one more day

Join me at Stand L39 in the Art Loft

Here are some photos taken over the last day or so

 

Day One and all the fuss and excitement of setting up.  What to bring, checklists that itemise drills, screws, labels, ladders …. and the list goes on and on. Starting with a clean canvas (pardon the pun) and within no time at all, the empty shell is filled with lots of paintings and hey presto – we’re ready!

House Event Continues - Last Day

Pleased to take part in the panel discussion and to talk about painting!

 

Some of the lovely visitors that came to my stand  and some paintings on their journey to their new homes.

Tomorrow is the last day so I do hope you will come along and visit if you are in the area.
