Dingle

My husband and I traveled through Ireland in October of 2017. We spent most of our time in Dingle & Kerry. Our mornings & afternoons included hiking in some of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Pretty much during all of our journeys, it was just the two of us. So we were able to lay claim of each experience to ourselves. It was a very special time in my life.

Our expeditions would begin and end at the bottom of a Cliffside, on a beach. This is where the series of small paintings, Dingle Shores, derive from. Each beach had its own distinct character: different colors, sand, water, and remnants that had washed ashore. Thus, I attempted to portray those differences in each painting by emphasizing textures and colors.

The Goose Keeper’s House is an actual home in Dingle. I was enjoying a scenic, morning run, passed the geese, and had to stop to share the moment. I watched as they came, wagging their tails in glee, from the side of the house to the front door. The elderly home owner stood in his doorway, ready to hand them their morning snack. Such a simple moment was incredibly beautiful. The blue house, pink roses, orange buoys hanging on the wall, and, of course, the 3 feathered friends.
