Beached in Bunbeg by Alan Hogan

This old oil painting shows a lonely fishing boat sitting on a beach near Bunbeg, a small fishing village in County Donegal, Ireland.
It is not unusual to see boats left stranded onshore in this part of Ireland. In fact a few shipwrecks are still dotted along the coastline. This picture was painted in 1988, so it may very well be the wreck you see in the photo here.

Here’s a nice video I found on YouTube of two children playing at such a shipwreck on Bunbeg beach in Ireland.

Born in Ireland, Alan Hogan is a visual artist now living in Finland. He paints a variety of subjects in a unique style which mixes traditional values with a hint of contemporary and sometimes melancholy undertones. He is also interested in photography.

    Minimalist and evocative. Caught my eye as I was scanning pics. Great work!

  • Thanks Mark. It’s a very peaceful painting to look at I think.
