Painting: “Poolbeg, Kayakers, Sunlight”
An iconic Dublin scene I would have a long close look at once a month for over a decade. It’s of Scotman’s Bay as you look at the back of Dún Laoghaire’s East Pier and beyond to the Poolbeg chimney stacks. I was always on a bicycle when I did this and would stop by Sandycove to take in this view. This painting has one million dots on it. Exactly one million. And three million dashes. After I painted them I then painted lines around and in between them, because there was nothing on telly that night.
This painting was a commission, and the original now hangs in France, but prints of “Poolbeg, Kayakers, Sunlight” are available (in various sizes from small of 40cm x 30 cm up to 81 cm x 61 cm, and in different formats, like canvas and metal as well as the classic Art Print)
Being a much loved Dublin landmark this painting is also popular on mugs, t-shirts, cushions and more. See the whole range here.
