Landscapes from a few years back ....

This is the view over the fields from the back of my house in West Limerick. I did this painting on location - en plein air, to use the posh artist phrase, which means 'outside in the open' - in the summer of 2002, and it's oil paint on paper, applied mainly with palette knife. I love where I live. This painting is simply called Ballyneale and is about 90x60 cm.

Currently in my own collection.

I really like this piece. The picture is too small here to appriciate it fully though. One can mearly wonder, why only one piece in this classical impressionistic manner (as i imagine it :)).
