I've made a sale!!!!
Entitled Bookshelf, 30x45 cm, oil on canvas and mixed media. Sold through the Joan Clancy Gallery in Ring, County Waterford, Ireland. Thanks Joan!
It's a personal painting, and a kind of tribute to my Dad. He used to read to us, and instilled a love of literature in all of us. Above are some of the books he'd read to us every night before he'd go out for his pint, and his beloved crossword puzzles, and some of the plays and poetry he loved, and subjects he also enjoyed, like the Irish countryside and photography as art in the brilliant publication The Family of Man, and some of the writers he introduced me to growing up.
