Limited edition print (200). Watercolour area 220 x 159 mm. This painting was made in 2013 at Killeenaran, Co. Galway, Ireland.

About two miles down the road is a very pretty pier at Killeenaran. The tide drops to nothing, as in this picture, and rises to the top at high tide. On warm days the entire community turn up for a swim and it is fantastic fun, once you get over the shock of the cold. It’s even more fun in a wetsuit. The water is pristine, and a bit further along oysters and mussels are harvested.
