- "Dusk at Achill
Island", Ireland, an original oil on panel, the fifth in
a series of paintings with Irish subject matter. In this dusk
scene painting I wanted to show the elegant lines, atmosphere
and light at dusk on Achill Island. This is the second time I
have revisited this subject and in this painting of this wondrous
place filled with light and luminosity nearly as deep as its'
inhabitants. In a real attempt I try to offer a bit of the peat
boggs that are ever present out in that green Irish grass and
plant life. From my point of view one can't visit such a beautiful
place and not miss it in the future of thought. I'll say it again,
"one could easily devote a career to painting the light
on Achill Island." Yes I still dream of going back
to the Bervie and this view is something like what I hope to
see when the time comes.
