The outermost west of the Dingle Peninsula is undisputedley one of the most beautiful areas in Ireland. When the next parish is America and the wind is coming from that direction, you will have a wild and wonderful walk along a coastline fringed with spectacular beaches surrounded by imposing uplands.
Even on a calm day, the little circular bay of Clogher, Co Kerry, is enchanting, with a pocket beach encased by battered cliffs and, offshore, stretched in repose, the arresting Fear Marbh, or Dead Man, the most northerly of the Blasket Islands.
With a strong westerly wind blowing, it is transformed into a maelstrom. Waves up to eight metres high thunder into the cove and break on the cliffs in great fountains of spray that seem to hang suspended in the air for seconds, before falling back into the turmoil beneath them.
MEDIUM: Painted in Acrylic and Mixed Media (Clogher Strand Sand, Mother of pearl crushed, Clogher Strand Shells, Native Carragheen seaweed, Gold & Copper Leaf flakes, Mica flakes.
CANVAS: Natural white Box Canvas made of 100% pure cotton with a perceptibly fine linen structure and a matte-white coating. This linen is acid free and 100% linen which means it will not fade or yellow and will stand the test of time. For added protection I spray all of my works with UV absorbing fixative also.
