Landscape format in a very loose style of many colours and black ink lines. Front view of two buildings on a main street. On the right is a large 3-storey building with 5 narrow windows across its width in the top storey and a pub front at street level one side of a central narrow door and a metal railing gate on the other side through to a courtyard or garage. Above the pub sign is a large window on the 2nd floor. The building is generally a pale orange but is flecked with many different colours, and has a couple of red flags flying above the pub fascia. The building adjoining it on the left is two storeys, has a slate roof of generally grey with other colours mixed in. It has a shop front at street level with green fascia and posts. Three narrow window bays are across its 2nd storey. The building is generally yellow but with significant sections that have pink or orange or blue or green. Something red is in the window. At the sides Signed Liam Daly.

New Painting #18 “Naas, Main Street” (Kildare)

Miniature on paper 8.9 cm x 6.4 cm (3.5 in x 2.5 in)

Update: SOLD
€45 (+ €10 Registered post to Ireland, €13 to rest of the world)

The last painting of this night (two more nights still to go) is the smallest work tonight and of the entire sale – though there are more in this series coming in the next couple of nights. Please NOTE THE SIZE. This is small. Very small. It fits in the palm of your hand.

I’d love to do an exhibition of 100 of these paintings, trying to capture as much of the towns and villages in the country as possible. But for now I’ve only done 3, albeit with 3 more in progress. And for right now you just get to see this one. It’s Naas, a place I’ve gone to more times since it was bypassed – but that’s more a commentary on my life rather than the transportation system of Ireland. I love shapes, especially squares or anything with a right angle. So I love most buildings and street scenes and I could paint them forever. So I probably will.

UPDATE: This painting is now SOLD.
If you’d like to buy this miniature painting message me somewhere or post a comment saying so before anyone else does, and whoever shouts at me first I’ll then privately make arrangements for payment (likely by bank transfer or cash if you’re known to me, and by another secure method if not).

Meanwhile all comments and likes and clicks help – even if it’s not obvious, I mean I have self-esteem issues – so thank you.

    I love that you can say so much in such a small space.

      Thanks Martha. Admittedly there are times I wonder why I don’t say it in a larger piece instead 🙂
