‘Slieve Gullion II’
Acrylic on Paper, FRAMED – 22.9 x 30.5 cm
A smaller work on paper, this painting was again inspired by my local volcano, Slieve Gullion in Northern Ireland. The painting uses bold brushstrokes in rich terracotta – my favourite time of year in Autumn when the heather turns gold. And spot the little ‘tarn’ on the face of the mountain. Legend has it that an old hag transformed herself into a beautiful girl to entice the mythical giant to retrieve the golden ring she had dropped in the lake However, upon emerging from the lake, he found his hair had turned white – he was now a weak old man, the crater lake having sapped his strength and vitality.
