A Burren Wall - oil/panel - 5"x5" - sold
Back to my daily 'sketches in oil' now. As much as I love working in the studio, being outdoors presents an altogether more intensely real experience. The wind, fleeting light, sounds and smells create in me a directness in how I work to transcribe that experience of nature in paint.
The last couple of weeks have given me a chance to contemplate my next steps and I now have some pretty strong ideas about how I might approach my next bodies of work when I arrive in the West of Ireland. Will fill you in in more detail soon.
This piece above and the one to follow have found their way into a very important private collection in Pasadena, CA. Best wishes to all the Bacon Family.

The Golden Watering Can - oil/panel - 14"x11" - sold
'As every thread of gold is valuable, so is every moment of time'.
Another very recent piece created that does not feature in my current show.
Really fond of this piece in how I managed to control the light and colour temperatures as it reads from left to right.

Bitter Sweet with Lemon, Silver Jug and Spoon - oil on canvas - 12"x12" - sold
Arrived back to Dublin Yesterday from Westport town in Co. Mayo.
My show opened on Thursday last, and has gotten off to a great start.
The opening night was a packed house.
Thanks to all who came along to the Official Opening, especially to those who traveled distances to celebrate the launch with me.
I was really taken with all the beautiful comments left in the visitors book.
The show has now been extended into October, so if any of you are in the west do pop into see the Works on display. The Gallery opens Monday to Saturday - 10am to 6pm.
Recieved some really great news last week while in Mayo.
I have been accepted to be Artist in residence at the Custom House Studios which are situated on the beautiful Westport Quay.
Looking forward now to getting organized and ready to go back West to work for the winter months.
