Ever meet someone that you just HAD to paint straight away?
That's what happened when I met this man from Limerick, who oozed character and charisma!
I knew exactly how I wanted to portray him and what setting I wished him to be a part of, so he posed
for me looking out to sea, as if waiting, for something, or someone.
The painting has a distinct Irish "emigrant" feel to it, waiting for the ship to take him to a new beginning,or
as many have said to me,
waiting for the barrells of Guinness to arrive!
Hence the title;
"Ta Siad ag Teacht"(They"re Arriving)
Oil on Panel
