Clearing in the Wood V in Context
Clearing in the Wood detail
This piece is inspired by a small pond not far from where I live in Provence. It was summer and the warmth of the day was beginning to ease. The view at dusk before me, of silhouetted pines set against a sky rich with colour, is the powerful memory I wanted to evoke in this piece. 

I have used two pairs of near complementary colours to enhance the piece’s sense of mystery and wonderment.

The lemon green sky work with the deep violet shadows in the undergrowth and trees and the powder blue pines in the distance are complemented by the deep cadmium orange glow of the setting sun.

The colours interactions are played out again in the still pond’s reflection in an echo that fits the enclosed space and intensifies the energy in the painting.

Using colour in all its richness brings an emotional strength to this piece, redolent of the force of nature and the sultry heat of a summer evening in Provence

This 31.5″ x 31.5 x 1.5″, Oil on canvas ready to hang.

All my paintings are varnished to add a protective coat against dust.

Only the highest quality archival fine art grade oil paint are used on the surface gessoed and prepared by myself.

Packing: all work is packed professionally using protective compressed foam boards 2 cm deep so that your painting arrives safely.

Wandering through the landscape we're touched by its mood and light, we live in it, and it lives in us. This magical union is where my paintings are born. How can I make tangible on a paint surface a world that is full of magic and poetry? My finished pieces do not mirror a subject matter but are a representation of emotions felt in a specific time or place. Often the fleeting effect of a particular light and colour in nature are held somewhere in my visual memory. At some point, this takes centre stage on the painting I am working on. It may appear during the process of creation without an obvious connection to the subject matter at hand and yet, it adds another dimension, a particular atmosphere. These processes are ways and means by which I express my connection to nature in all its richness and variety. I am an Irish artist living and working in Provence France My work is rooted in the Romantic landscape tradition. I hold a Bachelor Degree in Fine Art (BFA). My work is in collections in France, the USA, Great Britain and Ireland.
