Artist's description:

There's a little town on the south coast of Ireland which is very dear to my heart.

My in-laws have spent a thousand happy summers there, proving that a modest caravan really can accommodate 'too many people', and that a few boiled eggs and a bit of lettuce can turn into a banquet if gin, chatter and laughter are involved.

There are galleries and pubs and an annual Pattern, with exhibitions and dancing and fire eaters and song. You can walk 'round the head' and listen to the screaming of seagulls on the cliffs as you scan the waves for dolphins and the occasional whale.

You can be blown into the middle of next week, the rain can fall at one end of the beach but not the other, and occasionally it's so calm that a dog bark can be heard on the far side of the bay.

At low tide, if you're daft enough, you can crawl through the gap beneath St Declan's stone. Oh yes, of course I've done it!

10 x 8" framed in limed white wood.

St Declan's Stone, Ardmore (2015)
