Square format. Coastal scene. Horizon under a pale blue sky is three-quarters the way up the painting. On it coming in from the right sits a very dark blue headland. In front of it is a couple of much smaller paler blue hills, while behind it in the distance to the leftout to sea is a pale blue island or hill. A very thin sliver of almost white water runs across most of the picture separated by another thin sliver that is land rendered in dark blue-gree. The rest of the painting is water, in graphic but painterly blotches of pale blue wtih a wide vertical patch of pale yellow like a reflection from the sky. On either side small headlands peep in. At the bottom in the foreground it is largely pink with a red and a yellow section by the water's edge and a couple of dark horizontal shapes that perhaps could be a boat or two.

€185 (+ €13 Registered post to Ireland; €15-€30 to rest of world)

The most popular painting the last few months here in the house where I live. And by popular I mean the three other people that have seen it liked it.  But of course I liked it first, which is why I painted it. By now you’ll be getting the hang of me liking shapes, including shapes of the land as well as shapes of buildings, and this is what I see when I’m walking around the corner to the shops. The view isn’t like this, you understand, it’s that my head takes to places I’ve walked and cycled and loved and laughed. And those places have water sliding in between landmasses, around islands and headlands, covering causeways and exposing beaches. Hills and mountains appear, and sometimes they’re very dark. Sometimes the sky is dark and sometimes it’s blue. Light bounces off water, boats appear sleeping by the side of a field of stones. So walking to the shops my head draws impressions of Derrynane in Kerry, and Clonakilty in Cork, and Rosmuc in Galway, and Gortahork in Donegal. And it meshes them all together before I even buy teabags. But eventually I get to paint that image – and this is it.

UPDATE: This painting is now SOLD.
If you’d like to buy this painting so you can look where you’re going when walking to the shops and not day dream about the west of Ireland, please either message me privately (any method) or publicly post a comment below the painting on my website or on Facebook, and if you do so before anybody else I’ll mark it as sold for you and behind the curtain when I get a chance I’ll make arrangements with you for payment (probably bank transfer or cash if you’re known to me, and by another secure method if not) and delivery. It may take me some minutes to see all the notifications about different things and to check everywhere before I respond to you, but I will get there.

You might not be able to afford this, or perhaps you’re quite wealthy but it’s just not for you – either way, you might know someone who likes the west of Ireland, no specifically (you get the gist).
