pink wellie afternoon
This painting was inspired by a pair of gorgeous pink wellies that belong to my dog walking companion friend Fiona. If one must wear wellies and in Ireland we must, then let them be pink I say, and not cute girly powder pink but strong, luscious deep raspberry pink. Don’t get me going on colour…I can get a little carried away!

I have always been a little obsessive about colour but I have learned to keep it under wraps. Normal people don’t obsess about colour and lets face it people have been burned at the stake for less strange behaviours. But now that I’ve allowed myself to make this my career I feel that I can get away with admitting to my OCD. Being an Artist has given me license to express my colour obsession and people seem to let me away with more.
It’s not surprising that I turned out this way. I remember calling into my mum years ago with some shopping. Ten minutes after I arrived she stopped me mid sentence and said “I’m sorry, but can you get rid of that shopping bag? I just can’t have that blue in this room!” Is it any wonder I ask you?
