Killarney National Forest

When we left Dingle Peninsula in Ireland to go to another peninsula further south I navigated us to avoid highways. I ended up guiding us through the Killarney National Forest without realizing it. About 10 minutes into the drive we were both doing an about face trying to figure out what treasure we had come upon. Killarney National Forest is a sight to behold.

This painting is a rendition of a lake we passed by as soon as we entered the national forest lands. Of course we jumped out of the car to hike out to the lake. Absolutely beautiful. Very serene.

The Cliffs of Dingle Peninsula


Last fall, we fell into an opportunity to travel to Ireland. Ireland was never top on my list of international spots to visit. Now after having been there I can not wait to go back. Visiting Ireland again has risen very high on my list of ‘must do’ vacations. Our first couple of days was spent exploring the coast of Dingle Peninsula. Simply enchanting.

As we toured the coast it was stunning to see brilliant green fields turn into rocky cliffs over the ocean. Much of the coast line are lush fields where livestock, sheep and cattle, are raised. Viewing the laid back serenity made it easy to picture living a life that was connected to the land without materialist things.

Mooring on the Marsh

The last time we visited Sullivan’s Island the scene of a boat rising above the intercoastal waterway in it’s mooring intrigued me. The coloring of my photo was washed out. I remember that when we arrived at the upstairs deck of the restaurant the sunset transformed the sky. I painted this with that mental image, imagining how the sunset would have looked with that boat hanging over the marsh, ready for a day of fun.

Foggy Appalachian Sunset

Sometimes there is a place that you look at again and again because it is so beautiful. The view down the field on our property is one of those places. I’ve seen so many gorgeous sunsets over these hills. They will simply take your breathe away. This painting is one of my favorites. The fog coming up in between the hills with the strong lights of the sky is so striking. To see the details of this painting, click here.
