I just returned from a 12 day visit to Ireland. I attended an encaustic workshop taught by Lora Murphy and Kathryn Bevier at the Burren College of Art, combined with visits to historical and cultural sites. It was fabulous, and although I am still processing new painting techniques and gorgeous grey/green landscapes of the Burren in County Clare, I want to keep the memory alive. Ireland touched me, the landscape literally is a reflection of this ancient place.
I created a brief slideshow of my visit, paintings to follow in the coming days.
