Oldtown up in very north County Dublin is great. There’s not a whole lot there. In terms of buildings that is. But there’s buckets of character. And luckily for me there was buckets of tea. I bought some in a kiosk by the pub down the lane. And then I bought some more, before cycling back. Then to the water pump where the road bends. The bend in the road being a feature I took to be the centre of Oldtown.
But I sat at the water pump with my paints because opposite was this tree and this house and how could you not? In the hours I was there only one person passed me. A nice old woman who had a brief chat, and then two hours later we continued our chat as she made her way back from somewhere to somewhere. There are a lot of thatched houses in rural north County Dublin, but this one was impossible to ignore thanks to the tree and that somebody had painted the wall all black and yellow because they were expecting me.
If you’d like to buy this painting then shout at me publicly and/or privately to make arrangements – which will be by bank transfer or cash. As ever I’m grateful for you sharing this with people who might like, let’s call it a village, or rural Dublin, or whopping wonderful trees. But you don’t have to.
