Artist's Description

Oil painting on canvas (original sold)

I painted this scene of an Irish village several years ago, adapted from an old photograph dating from probably the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. The man with the cart is probably a trader, the young woman looks on while the elderly folk take in the sun and watch the activity in the village.

Interesting to see the various buildings, from poor thatched cottages to well built stone (shops?) and wealthy mansions.

In Ireland today, many of these building would still exist. I live in an old cottage which once had a thatched roof and probably looked pretty much like the one in the painting.

The slate roofs can still be seen in some places and the shops and stores still look very much the same… double glazed windows replace the old wooden frames and inside its very modern but walk through any old Irish village or town and you will see that the old buildings are still there.

Driving through an old village is a nightmare… the road is narrow and will swerve because, as in this painting, a building could jut out into the road.

Slow down world!! Bring back the donkey and cart, I say!!! :-)
