Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This painting from memory is looking across Dublin bay to Dun Laoghaire at twilight, a special time when the seconds passing can be fully brought into clear focus if we stop to look. A quiet moment remembered resulted in this tranquil painting.
This time is the cusp when material becomes immaterial. This can be incredibly moving as our eyes adjust to the dark and other colours gradually appear that we often miss in the full glare of daylight. These colours are subdued and not noticeable at first and yet when viewing the painting, you can connect colour to an emotion, a memory or a feeling which are often intangible and fragmentary. That was what I hoped to capture in this piece.
I hope you enjoy it.

I exhibit internationally and my art is featured in collections worldwide.

'The Blue Hour II' is ready to hang. The edges, painted white, are 1.75" deep so framing is not required. All paintings are varnished to add a protective coat against dust.

Only the highest quality archival fine art grade oil paints are used on the surface gessoed and prepared by myself.

All work is packed professionally using protective compressed foam boards 2 cm deep so that your painting arrives safely.

Shipping: the painting is shipped insured and with a tracking number I email you.
