Landscape format. Corner of a village with single storey buildings behind a large traffic island which houses a tree, a small monument, an elaborate water pump, a load of bollards, and some ornate lamp-posts. Cottages have slate roofs of purples, greys and blues. A long one on the right has a large Irish tricolour covering most of the wall to the left of its small porch, while on the right hangs a Ukrainian flag of blue over yellow. The tree is dominant in the centre, twice the height of the cottages, a rich brown trunk with blues and green on it, and lightly rendered hints of foliage at the outer reaches of the branches. On the right edge behind the cottage with the Ukraine flag is the top of castle-like structure and tower beside it

It was warm and sunny when I cycled into Lusk. Years since I’d last cycled there I cycled all around it, because I was loving the shapes of the buildings, the cottages, and the towers. It was no longer sunny by the time I sat on a wall with my paints. And what a brilliant time I had as I drew and painted. Young boys and girls walked around in groups. In case you don’t know what I look like I should tell you that I rarely get minutes from my front door before people shout things at me – such is the power of long unkempt grey hair and beard. And the loudest shouters are always the kids. But in Lusk they were lovely. They said nice things. They stopped and looked and said more nice things. And hours later when they came around again they carried on being nice. Cars that were stuck in traffic blocking me saw me painting so reversed out of my view. Other cars slowed down and asked me to hold up my picture, to which they then shouted kind things. It was all so nice I forgot how cold it was – until my fingers told me they could no longer hold a paintbrush. I’ll be going back to Lusk

This sale is first come first served so if you’d like to buy this painting message me or post a comment saying you would before anyone else does, and whoever shouts at me first I will then privately  make arrangements for payment with (Likely by bank transfer or cash). In the meantime if it’s not for you but you can think of a good reason to share it, I’ll be your best friend. I won’t really, that’s a bit much frankly – but I will be grateful.
