Clifden Painting (Galway)

Painting: “Clifden”

I like shapes. And I like the shapes of Clifden. Who, I ask you, doesn’t love a triangular square? This is Market Square. People seem to like Clifden because of the good times they’ve had there. I’d be in that camp. People like Clifden a lot.

Surrounded by ridiculous scenery, the town known as the “capital of Connemara” is a coastal town tucked in between the foothills of the Twelve Bens and the Atlantic Ocean. Since I painted this the statue of Alcock and Brown has been added to the square in front of the obelisk.

The original painting is sold but prints of my Clifden painting are available here (in various sizes and different formats as well as the standard Art Print)

Other stuff
My Clifden painting is also available on mugs, cushions, t-shirts and a lot of things you may or may not find useful. Explore the full range here.
