Lough Gur Fern

I was looking through some works and decided to bring this painting back to DraĆ­ocht in Adare - we all like it, and everyone who sees it thinks it's kind of sweet - plus it's probably the best example of my own gaze, that I mentioned in my previous post: A man and his child just out enjoying the shores of the lake, the child playing with a bit of fern she'd pulled from the forest floor.

That day we went there was a Sunday afternoon and a lot of locals were out enjoying the autumn sunshine. I would imagine that Dad here had his hands full with the little girl, as little kids and large bodies of water can be a dangerous combination, and there were swans on the water that were simply fascinating ....
