Narcissi in Shamrock

My paintings of daffodils features on the cover of Peter Mulholland’s new book “Love’s Betrayal: The Decline of Catholicism and Rise of New Religions in Ireland”. Published by Peter Lang: https://www.peterlang.com/view/9781788744324/xhtml/fm_copyright.xhtml

Love’s Betrayal: The Decline of Catholicism and Rise of New Religions in Ireland. By Peter Mulholland.

I did a few paintings before this one suited Peter’s ideas for the cover, in his words “The 432 daffodils refer to the year that St Patrick is said to have come to Christianise Ireland and the  cumulative development of the narcissism that led to the Church being brought to its knees by the scandal of child abuse while the shamrock in the foreground also allude to St Patrick and the doctrine of the holy trinity which is discussed in the book”.

Poolbeg through the Mist

A fading mist, a beautiful evening, shadow moving westward.

Mist lifting in the evening sun. Darkness approaching.

Awakening out of Winter

Awakening out of winter, I finished this gull painting last week, it’s been on my mind and I’ve been sketching the idea since being on Achill last year. In the shallows, the seaweed turns over with the tide, mixing with the foam – rich pickings for the gull.
