Artist's description:

The third and largest in this series of sunsets with warm and vibrant colours, it shows the last rays of the sun as it disappears behind a heather-covered Irish mountain at that precise moment when the sky seems to be ablaze with flamboyant colours, as if it was the last show.
We know the sun goes down, it punctuates the cycle of life with a high point and once night sets in, we know we can look forward to a new day when the sun will rise again. Things move on and yet there is a continuity...
This painting is made from memory of the West of Ireland where the light can be sublime.

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

Till the Last Ray Gleams III is ready to hang. The edges, painted with 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 a 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.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

A statement on why I make Art.
How can I make tangible on a paint surface a world that is full of magic and poetry? My finished pieces do not mirror a subject matter but are a representation of emotions felt in a specific time or place. Often the fleeting effect of a particular light and colour in nature are held somewhere in my visual memory. At some point, this takes centre stage on the painting I am working on. It may appear during the process of creation without an obvious connection to the subject matter at hand and yet, it adds another dimension, a particular atmosphere. These processes are ways and means by which I express my connection to nature in all its richness and variety. I moved from Ireland to France to create a new body of work with the regular discipline of painting small oil studies on panel. These inform larger landscapes, still lifes and abstract works. I hold a Bachelor Degree in Fine Art (BFA). My work is in collections in France, the USA, Great Britain and Ireland.
