Connemara Views

A recent trip from Galway city to Clifden  and on to Cleggan left me feeling much inspired.

It was a cold and wet day  but the constant changing light danced around the rugged  landscape,  shifting its mood and tone as it contrasted  with the Twelve Bens   mountain range to the north. Sheep grazed in the surrounding  bog-lands that were illuminated by shades of gold as time stood still.

This painting reflects my memory of the trip.

While I am speaking about the glories of Ireland and its rich countryside, may I take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick’s Day
