Artwork description:

Part of my series of 'Blue Eyes' paintings, this version of Roger Casement, was my first version of him. I find him a fascinating character to paint because of his political heroics. He fought Indigenous rights in Brazil and the Congo and was executed for his role in the Irish rebellion of 1916. Being of Irish origin, with strong links to the West of Ireland, who suffered greatly during the famine and British control, Roger has become a hero of mine. Having lived in Brazil and worked with the Indigenous communities near the border with Paraguay, I cannot imagine how hard he had to fight for their Human Rights to be respected. Finally, his conviction, based on his sexuality, was a cruel discrimination of the times in which he lived. A true hero and a true gentleman, who is worth researching. he truly made a difference.

The 'Blue Eyes' series evolved from a friend of thirty years doubting my eye colour. They are blue and i have painted a number of people and characters with obviously blue eyes. He was painted in Winnipeg, Canada, whilst visiting my sister.

Irish Blue Eyes is sold unframed.
