Other Description

 

The scene depicts the Claddagh in Galway Bay and was inspired by a return visit to the area where I spent many a happy hour during my college days in this city.
An event which left a memorable impression on me was the gathering of the *hookers” a local variety of sailing boat for a race in the bay.
I chose a more romantic and nostalgic mood by depicting just one boat and echoing the red of the sail in the fading light of sunset’

The painting which is in oils is on a gallery wrap canvas in a white frame total measurement 19″ x 23″
