A Walk in the Snow, Dublin . I couldn't resist painting this scene when we had the big snow back a couple of years ago . Unfortunately this couple of lovers didn't stay still for long as they took their crunchy romantic walk in the snow . I had to rely on memory and photos for reference back in the studio.
A Stolen Moment on the Halfpenny Bridge,Dublin 533
A Stolen Moment, Dublin. This one was painted close to Valentines Day, whilst doffing my cap to the photographer Robert Doisneau and his iconic photo 'Le baiser de l'Hôtel de Ville' , depicting a couple kissing in a Paris street .... another stolen moment ... even if it was staged! These days I think its just tourist couples that have the time to stop and do this in the middle of the street .... probably just after they stuck a 'love padlock' somewhere on the Halfpenny Bridge!
