Landscape format of coastal scene showing a blue slash turquoise inlet from a height. In the foreground is a field sloping down steeply to the right. It has long soft grass, willowy yellow in places. At the far edge of the field, also sloping down sharply to the water is a dry stone wall. It is mostly in dark shadow on the near side, with bright stones along its uneven top. Across the bay on the high horizon are rocky pale green headlands edged with orange seaweed covered black rocks. Sky is a narrow stip of very pale teal.

Kingstown Bay (Connemara, Galway)

Painting: “Kingstown Bay” (Connemara, Galway) 

I worked on this painting for 3 years. If you don’t count the years of fermenting in my head from the moment I was first arrested by the scene.  By myself, with a mostly inanimate bicycle, I just stood there looking at the view and wanting to tell someone, anyone, to share it, and probably fall in love. But there wasn’t even any traffic. Eventually three horses walked into view and we had a chat. But I’m keeping that moment for myself and offering you the painting of the view.

If you ever fancy a walk or cycle in the west of County Galway, well as you can gather I would heartily recommend the northern side of the Kingstown peninsula.

The original painting of Kingstown Bay is sold but prints are available here in various sizes and different formats like on canvas or metal as well as the standard Art Print.
