One of the things that intrigued me most during my trips to Ireland was how the feel of the landscape was so varied. You would be driving past beautiful, modern looking homes and right there in the middle of them would sit a quaint farm. In the painting “Days Gone By” I wanted to capture the charm of these places that had stood for so many years. I could sense that the walls held many stories (the Irish are great story tellers) and I wished there was some way, something more than by just painting them, that I could try to interpret those stories. But, I am a painter and I tell my version of the stories on my canvas.
