Mullaghmor - Oil Painting - dedicated to my friend, John Quinn

In memory of my friend, John Quinn who died tragically on Sunday 11 July 2010. John was a kind, soft-spoken and generous man and I am so sorry that he will never get to see this painting that was done from one of his beautiful photographs.

John was a talented photographer and his passing is a great loss, not only to his friends and family but also to County Clare. We will always remember you, John and your photographs will live forever as testiment to your talent as photographer and love of Ireland.

Rest in peace, dear friend. Thank you for allowing me to use your photographs as references for my paintings. I will miss our chats, the rhubarb pie you always brought with you, endless cups of coffee and tea and your patience in trying to teach me to use my camera. 

 I miss you.
