There's Gold in Them Thar Hills
Acrylic and linen on canvas

The composition was developed from a view in Fintra Bay, Donegal, Ireland. Across a period of over a year, with several iterations, the painting was changed and reduced to just the essential graphical elements of sky, mountain and road. The mountain form was painted on a dipped sheet of linen, cut and added to the original canvas to get something of the texture and weight of the mountain, whilst still retaining a graphical simplicity to the final painted form.
