Still Life Paintings


Blueberries and Strawberries
Oil 25 x 30 cm 
A delicious bowl of fruit. 
I wanted to paint these colours together. I was attracted to the idea of the blueberries and the strawberries. I didn't try to say anything else.

Sunflower Field
Oil 40 x 50 cm
A group called the Boathouse Painters posted a paint out at a sunflower field to paint. I never knew of a sunflower field in Dublin. I associate them with the south of France. But near the Airport is this field. It is substantial and located in lovely rolling countryside.

I have a shrub in my garden called a Philadelphus. Also known as a mock orange. It has a beautiful scent. I have painted several paintigns of this plant.

Cafe with Yellow Awning.
Oil 25 x 35 cm
This was painted in the village of Enniskerry outside Dublin. I went there with a few painting friends, and when I saw this Yellow awning and the shapes of the people at the tables on the street, I knew I wanted to paint it. 

Philadelphus and Cherries.
Oil 30 x 30 cm 
I wanted to paint the flowers with the deep red of the cherries. 

Blessington Lake
Oil 25 x 35 cm 
This is about 20 miles outside Dublin in the Co. Wicklow. I liked the arial perspective that day and tried to capture something of the movement in the sky.
