Landscape format. Close up view of a crossroads in brilliant sunshine and dark shadows. The near buildings on both sides are leaning in at an angle, sort of fish-eyed. They are four storeys high., pink upper storeys on the left with a grey shop front, and dark blue on the right with a creamy food front with pink orange trim. A small tree has dark foliage and is backlit with yellow edges as it casts a dark blue shadow on the yellowy lime street. Shops are on both streets coming out from the junction, to the left in dark blue shadow and straight ahead in sun. Sky is pale lime and blue.

I get to Ballina most years so it’s countless times I’ve been there. First went in the mid 1990s when I was told the taxi driver was called PJ and he’d look after me when I came out of the train station. He did. And he told me I wouldn’t mind if he also picked up some woman and took her to hospital, and he was right.

Apart from pubs and stag weekends, I also often found myself wondering around Ballina when nobody else seemed to be around. Usually because I had time before walking out to the bus station or the train station, or just to see if there was someone I knew around. I sketched the junction years ago with a view to making this painting, and slowly over the years I’d visit the spot again and make mental notes for when I got home to look at my canvas and resume painting again. And here it is.
