Burren  Heart and Soul


The Burren, Heart of Stone featured on Irish television and it was a joy to watch.  The self-taught filmmaker Katrina Costello brought us on a magical journey, narrated by the soothing tones of  Brendan Gleeson.  It began with a walk through the seasons on this rocky limestone terrain, a fascinating and truly unique landscape in Co. Clare, Ireland.  The cinematography was second to none.   The Burren  is part of the Burren National Park, UNESCO site, adjacent territory including the Cliffs of Moher. It is formed of carboniferous shale, sandstones and limestone dating back 300 million years

Sometimes, I can feel, touch and taste the landscape.  I have visited the Burren many times and I have enjoyed working on this painting – Burren Heart & Soul. I wanted to try to capture a glimpse of this enchanting land with the curious shaped Mullaghmore mountain in the background.

Hopefully I have captured some of that magic in this oil painting 50 x 60 cms

This documentary introduced the flora and fauna, the fascinating turloughs and disappearing lake along with so many other truly interesting facts followed by a feature on nomadic hunters from prehistoric times. Worth checking out!
