Painting is based on a field trip to Ireland in 2004. I returned with over 600 digitals and occasionally use these as the refs for my Irish series of work. Taking a stroll through the town of London Derry, Ireland, I came across this view of some very old stucco buildings and was struck with the intense sunlight on the gables. The scene was was amplified by the simplistic shapes of composition in front of me. The painting comes delivered in an antique gold frame and is ready to hang.
