Cead Mile Failte - 6/9/2008 8:05:22 AM   
Guest
Hello to everybody here. My name is Thomas and I am an artist living in Ireland. I am so looking forward to learning so much from all of you and meet up with fellow minds.

I paint mostly in watercolurs and acrylics. Mainly landscapes but anything goes really. I also make a lot of woodcraft as well. My website is here www.celticcrossarts.com if you want to see what it is I do.

My favourite painters would be Samuel Palmer, Turner, Edward Hopper, Monet, John Singer Sargent, Charles Burchfield and just about anything which knocks me over with a feather and is painted/sculpted with sincerity and passion regardless of artists and era.

All the Best,
Thomas

The image below is my latest canvas entitled "Meet the Neighbours" which was the scene behind a studio I rented in Portobello in Dublin a few years back. I hope to enter it in the Boyle Arts Festival here in July.

Yes I will upgrade the memebership. I have only just arrived here and finding my way around and it all does look very promising indeed I must say. Well done.

Here is also an example of some of the woodcraft work I do. This is a celtic cross made with materials from local bogs, woods and old ruins. The Celtic graphics are my own design based on 6th and 7th century sources and are hand painted in acrylics.

love your "meet the neighbors" painting. I have never seen power wires look so charming  they almost look like a maypole the way they are depicted. It is a lovely style that you have

Thanks Swirly the idea of the wires was based on the fact that the people in all them buildings were most immigrants from all over the world and they perhaps had more conversations with people in their homelands via that telephone pole in the back than the neighbours beside them. A 'so close and yet so far' kind of thing.

Now I feell totally pretentious! LOL.

Hi Thomas.
Love your work very much! Great painting. I love the way how you've painted the dramatic sky! WOW. I have always difficulties to paint sky in the way I want to... LOL
I'm a great fan of Ireland (and Scotland too), visited Ireland very often... love Dublin, special Malahide (WOW), which is between airport and the town, the seashore in front of Malahide is really great - also the Grand Hotel - love it! - I love also Cork, Clifden, Waterford, Wicklow Mountains and the whole Ireland!!!!! It was always great to be there... Be happy that you live there!
