Medium;    Oil on Block canvas.


Size;            20cm.  


(Sq. white block frame size 31cm.)


Price; €400 ea. €750 pr. (plus p&p)



 






These are two small studies of flowers in my garden. 


The first is of a bee on lavender, entitled ‘The visitor’ and the other is called ‘My Allium’.


I was struck by their colour as they came in to flower one summer’s day and I just had to get them down on canvas before they began to lose their magic appeal.

 
 

Title;           Moonlit Sugarloaf

 

Medium;    Oil

 

Size;           60 x 60cm

 

Price;         €600

 

This painting was done in response to a request from the Greystones Art Group to its members to submit a painting of the Sugarloaf mountain

In Co. Wicklow to be displayed in their 50th anniversary exhibition in July 2015

 
 


Playing the 11th at Woodbrook


Medium;                      Acrylic 

Size (incl. frame)        53 x 61cm ( 21” x 24”)



 
I donated this painting of the golf course to be raffled during our 2016
Greystones Art Exhibition in aid of The Greystones Cancer Support Group. As
a result, we were able to present them with a cheque for €1000 which was
much appreciated.




 

Forth Bridge – proving the principle

Medium;    Acrylic

Size;           30x40cm incl. frame, 48x58cm


Price;         €700


 

This painting depicts a unique demonstration by the engineers working on the construction of the Forth Bridge to prove to a presiding committee that the principle actually worked. It is interesting to note that the engineer sitting on the swing was Japanese or so I was informed by a relation of mine who saw the painting.




The Megget Dam

Medium: Watercolour
Picture size:  35x45cm
Price:    unframed €450  
                framed  €550

 
This is a picture I did during a visit to the Scottish Borders. The dam had won first prize for best architectural project and it certainly deserved it.
During the painting, I lost the sheep when overpainting the masking fluid but managed to herd them up again I'm glad to say.




 

Boat at Dunfanaghy

 
Medium: Watercolour
Size:     8''x10''
Price:   SOLD
 


This painting was done while on a weeks holiday ( the prize for the radio art competition  mentioned previously).
 
 

 


Big blue flower

 
Medium:  Oil
 Size:    90x90cm
 Price:   €1200 (unframed)
SOLD
 

This is a large painting which I did over a couple of weekends during my working days. It was done on hardboard backed with 2''x2'' wood.
It has been the main feature in our bedroom since and although never framed, could look very impressive if it were, and placed the right situation.
 

 
Galloway Princess in Belfast Dock
 
Medium:  Watercolour
Size:   30x45cm
Price:  €750 (unframed)
           €900 (pewter finish metal frame)
This British Rail ferry, docked at Belfast, was painted from a photograph I took before a trip to Scotland in 1974 and could be classed as 'vintage'
I wrote to the harbourmasters at both Belfast and Stranraer at that time, enclosing a picture of the painting. They could have got for a song then.
 


 

Stranger in the forest

Medium:         Oil
Picture size:     30 x 25cm
Price unframed:  
€450  framed €600


 
Whether you agree with wind farms or not, when I stood
close to one of the pylons I was so impressed with the surging energy
and the whoosh, whoosh whoosh of the propellers that I just had to
try  to recapture the experience in this painting which I did in the west
of Ireland a few years ago.

 

 

Toward Lighthouse

Medium:          Mixed Media
Picture size:      41 x 34cm
Framed price:   €750
 
Holidays spent with my parents in the seaside town of Largs
on the Firth of Clyde, were magical. I was always fascinated by the
constant wink of light from Toward Lighthouse as it swept across
the Firth. And here it was at last, just yards away and in broad
daylight a good many years later.
 

 

Eagle Island, Co Mayo

Medium:         Oil
Picture size:     40 x 50cm
Framed price:  € 800
 
This is a picture of  Eagle Island Island off the West Coast of Ireland,
.I painted it while we were on holiday at my daughter's house in that beautiful
part of the Co. Mayo. Glimpses of the Island keep re-appearing  as one drives
around the area and on this occasion I was lucky enough to be on the spot
when it was looking it's best.
 


 

Erris Head

Medium:         Pastel
SOLD
This was another painting done while on holiday in Mayo. I have tried to convey
the extreme conditions one frequently experiences on the western seaboard as the
Atlantic rollers pound the shoreline.
 

 

Lisbon Rooftops
 
Medium:       Watercolour
 
Size:               33 x 33cm
 
Price:            €600
 
I did this painting from one of the many photographs I took on holiday in Portugal as the tiled rooftops just begged to be recorded. 
The picture was hung in the
Royal Hibernian Academy in 1995 and has been stored since its return.
 


 

Still life with peppers
 
Medium:     Watercolour
 
Size:              30 x 38cm
 
NFS


 The two peppers were the starting point for this study.  I had this plate which I bought to hang in our first house and
it had just one flower in the centre. I decided to replicate it as tiles as a background to the main attraction, the peppers.
Again this picture was chosen to hang in the RHA and now has my eldest daughter's name against it when I'm gone.

Kirkhope Tower is situated in the Scottish Borders near Selkirk.
I painted it from my daughter's house in Ettrickshaws some years ago.
It was derelict at that time but It has since been renovated and is now
occupied by it's new owners.

Title:            Borders Farm
Medium:      Watercolour and ink
Size:            15 x 50cm (framed)
Price:           €450



     


I did this painting about five years ago because I thought I would
like to see how near I could get to the beautiful full colour Ad.
I thought I would just tweak it a little so that it would'nt be a direct copy.
It was spotted by a German lady as she travelled on Dublin's light city tram system heading for St. Stephen's Green. The perfume must have been so overpowering that she got off at the next stop, came back and bought the painting.



Title:    Chanel No 5 and a half

SOLD
 


 

 


To sell an an advertisement to a client in the pre- computer era, the original idea had to be generated either by quick sketches, felt pens, or in some cases to full presentation roughs as they were called before the photographer was called in. This painting was done with those days in mind but with a quirky Irish twist
