Skelton Supper  70x90cm oil on canvas €2250

The Skelton room from Castle Leslie’s Lodge on the Castle Leslie Estate in Co. Monaghan.

Summer round up




I’m back home from a few weeks in the west of Ireland. Lots of sleep, music, good food and family.


No painting but I did manage to take loads of reference photos. Some images for landscape paintings, not sure exactly when I will get time for them but it’s a start. Also, we (7 of us and a dog!) were invited to lunch to the beautiful home of some friends overlooking the Shannon estuary and I took lots of photos while there.

But that was about as much work as I did and I am feeling all the better for it. I’m easing back into a more disciplined approach today and will start back properly on Monday.

Kerry Shows

The shows in Kerry are doing well with 14 paintings already sold and there’s been lots of great press too.

My great friends at the Irish Country Magazine are running a competition to win the painting below.

And finally….

I will be announcing the winner of the antique fork print next week. So if you haven’t entered there’s still a few days.

This one is open to all my friends from abroad by the way.
