As I look at this painting here beside me – it’s actually leaning against the television screen (we don’t turn it on much) – it seems much more vibrant in reality than this photo of it I’m sharing with you. I tried very hard to get it to match – but then the kettle boiled. As I often say, as a general rule the paintings are nicer in reality than their photos online. I know I would say that, wouldn’t I, but many people have told me this – so I’ll keep saying it.
Anyway, I’ve been to Tullow a few times, but of course the time that this painting is based on is the time I got to Tullow by bicycle. Carlow has great towns. I like a sense of space in a town, so I like towns that embrace rivers and I like towns that have squares. Look at all this space, I’m heard to say. You get good looks at the buildings when you have open space. And Tullow has a slope too which, since I was cycling down it, I was a big fan of. And then looking back I had this nice view. Yep, painting you I said. My bicycle yawned. Eventually when I left Tullow that day I cycled off on that street to the left there – which itself was a very pleasant experience.
If you’d like to buy this painting message me or post a comment saying so 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). If you like Tullow but not this rendition, or maybe you like it but it’s just not for you, I wouldn’t object if you told all the people that like Tullow – or y’know, near there in Carlow – that the painting is online and available.
And a reminder that if you don’t like scrolling through five million facebook posts to see what’s available, it’s easier on my website liamdaly.com to see everything.
