Returning Home

'To build your first house well is, ironically, to be nudged beyond it's doors'. - Richard Rohr

Seven weeks at work and play in Barcelona has been an unforgettable experience. I've seen the city, watched these paintings progress and felt new joy in there development.

I'm home now. Back in the Burren.
We'll talk soon.

The Story This Morning.

On Friday last we took a trip to the city of Valencia and only arrived back to Barcelona yesterday evening by train. The visit was really enjoyable and served as a nice break from the studio space here.
That being said I was dying to get back to painting!

I've attached here a selection of images showing what a few of the pieces looked like this morning before I continued working on them. A couple of the works are now near complete, but I'll need more time with them to be sure they are where I want them to be.

Also below and first in line, a short time lapse video piece put together in late January. It is my hope that it might give you some small insight into the motion, physicality and vigour that goes into creating these works.
