Landscape format. Close up view of a gap in a wooden fence for walking through to the Ocean on the right. Along the left side of the gap is a dry stone wall with a clump of long orange grass sprouting out from underneath it at the left end, and a green plant with little yellow flowers growing out of the cracks of the wall past the orange clump. Over the wall we see through barbed wire to a lime green rough field that leads up to a brown bank on the right where it drops down to a bed of pink rock that we see through the gap as it edges the ocean which is a smokey pale blue-green except in all the parts where it hits the rocks and is white. Along the horizon past the lime field is a long low mountain of faded dark green above a strip of maroon. Behind to the left is a blue mountain, and further in the distance on the right edging the ocean is a pale blue mountain. The foreground on the right has the wooden fence post with a fluffy clump of green and orange grass at its base. There are three horizontal strips of wood with a wire mesh attached through which we see the ocean . The sky is big billowing clouds with pale grey underneaths, white top edges, and a gap in the middle showing pale blue. Signed bottom right Liam Daly.

Update: SOLD
Price €335 (+ €13 Registered post to Ireland; €26-€43 to rest of world)

Welcome to Night 2 of my 5-night sale of new paintings. 6 more new works are being rolled out to you tonight, one every 30 mins. I may be a few mins late because – my fingers are struggling with all the typing and flipping of tabs. Of last night’s 6 paintings 5 sold so one is available – have a goo and see what you think. Onwards.

I’ve always enjoyed going to places but then not quite going there, as in walking up to the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur when they were the tallest buildings in the world then walking away from the front door rather than going in and up. Or cycling to the entrance to the Giants’ Causeway then deciding to cycle on and eat potato cakes as I enjoyed Dunseverick Castle all alone instead. And so it was on the north coast of Mayo.

I stayed in the car park for Downpatrick Head, because I couldn’t stop looking at the view west along the coast. The wind was blowing me over and blowing sunshine in to replace rain and then rain to replace sunshine. At the other end of the car park was a trail of people walking up Downpatrick Head for the close view out to the sea stack of Dún Briste. I looked at those people and said “No, I’ll paint you another time dear sea stack”, but to the stone wall beside me and the crashing ocean down below I said you I am going to paint soon. And three years later that painting is finished.

UPDATE: This painting is now SOLD.
If you’d like to buy my “North Mayo Coast” painting message me privately by any method or publicly post a comment below the painting on my website or on facebook 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’re known to me, and by another secure method if not). Because I’m checking multiple methods of being messaged it can take me a little time to get back to you, and if necessary I may even have to compare timestamps to see who shouted first.

As ever I’ll say thank you if you’re able to help me spread the word of the existence of this painting – but only to people you think might like it; I don’t want you falling out with people because you keep pushing paintings of Mayo at them and they’ve repeatedly told you they’re only interested in paintings of Roscommon.
