From my ‘Land of Plenty’ collection, ‘Across the sea to the Skelligs’ was painted following a residency at Cill Rialaig in Kerry.
Situated on Bolus Head – Ireland’s most south-westerly point, the residency is set in a famine village that looks out at the Skelligs – the early Christian monastic islands. The rugged sea seemed to span a mystical journey of centuries and yet I felt connected by instinct and some sort of magic thread to this ancient other world.
