Small oil paintings from a self taught, self doubting artist
Tuesday, March 2, 2010
An experiment in painting flowers. My teacher and friend Kevin, was it seems determined for me to paint that carnation today! I took it out of the compostion a couple of times but it ended up right back in there.

I forgot yesterday to show you some of the splendor of the kingdom of Kerry. This photo was taken at Ross Castle but really doesn't do the scene much justice I'm afraid. It felt a bit like where my sister lives in the okanagan valley in BC Canada.
I am an Irish artist of impeccable pedigree! Coming as I do, from a family of talented and sucessful artists.
Since embracing the daily Painting movement some time ago I paint a small painting, every day or every other day and post them here. Having discovered the fun of regular blogging, I am fired up by the idea of being part of a global discussion around painting that is a varied as there are artists.
