"The Irish Scene started as my first Plein Air experience as a teenager. Watching clouds roll across the landscape as the rain came down and five minutes later the sun shined, I learned very quickly how challenging outdoor painting could be. These scenes are land and seascapes from County Cork. As you visit each individual peninsula, it is hard not to be taken away by the raw beauty. As you look, there are also more sheep (cairo in gailic) enjoying the spectacular views than people."
