Seamus Heaney, in progress...

My painting of Seamus Heaney is more than half completed... I think. I'm trying to finish in time for his visit in April to Villanova University Irish Studies event.

He will be my twelfth Irish Writer painting. The paintings are so large that I've never been able to see them all in the same room. Nine of them, owned by Clifford and Ruth Melberger of Scranton, PA, are currently hanging on a huge brick wall at the Library building at Wyoming Seminary School in Wilkes Barre, PA.

I think maybe I better make the next twelve a little smaller.
