I took the coast roadWest out of Galway and then turned into the interior and came across this beautiful, muscularConnemara pony. For me, the stone wall and rugged November plant life turned the simple act ofgrazing into a wild, thrilling thing. Call me crazy but that's the way I sees it.
I'm hoping to connect with others who have fallen hard for Ireland. I'm a painter and a photographer... and having our photographic Ireland Calendar dropped by the publisher doesn't keep me from taking a million photos during our almost-annual trips to Ireland. When at home I keep turning out paintings of Ireland, some more traditional, some I call "natural abstracts' which are up close and personal looks at Nature's graphic design.

The stunning bay of Loughros is a few miles west of Ardara in Southwest Donegal. This painting is hanging in the Wayside Pub, a new Irish pub/restaurant in Lake Jackson, TX, on the gulf coast south of Houston.
This view of Kylemore Lough is just east from Kylemore Abbey in Connemara, Co. Galway.
