ATLANTIC SUMMER

DSC_3704

Photos on a walk from Clogher Beach to Cuas na nEighe (Cuas na Nae), on the wild Atlantic coast of the Dingle Peninsula, on the Souh West of Ireland. The sea pinks were just slightly past their best, after some stormy winds, but still looking pretty marvellous.

The Tiaracht is the triangular Island on the horizon above – one of the Blasket Islands group.

Rough though it looks, the water was relatively calm for this area, on this day.

My walking companions hadn’t seen this spot before, they were enthralled!

BEAUTY AND THE BEASTS

The storms are coming think and fast these days. Fierce though they are, they provide a wonderful magnetic attraction, particularly around our coasts, for along with the beasts that they are, they create powerful spectacles in the form of giant waves, massive splashes and magnificent movement.

ATLANTIC SURF – NEW PAINTING

A new one, oil on canvas 31 x 23.5 inches

http://www.helene-brennan.com/atlantic-surf

rrem

The place of inspiration, (though not much of the place may be obvious from this painting), is near Clogher Beach, viewed across the beach inlet from the walk known as Cosán na nEighe, towards Cuas na nEighe. Several of my recent paintings have been inspired by this often turbulent scene, with the very wild and stormy Atlantic Ocean and the rocky coastline at this spot.

More of my recent paintings can be seen on my website:

One of the most wonderful places to be on the Dingle Peninsula. Inis Tiaracht  and Inis Tuaisceart (Sleeping Giant) – both islands of the Blasket group, are on the horizon, left to right.
