Ireland, for it's small size, is a country of vast and varied beauty. It is impossible not to feel inspired no matter where you find yourself. In this unique collection, Fran has depicted some of his favourite places and landmarks with a strong focus on colour and intrigue. We hope you enjoy the collection and that the work resonates with you as much as it does with us.
This piece is part of our 'Inspired by Ireland' series.
Inspired by the Irish woodlands.
When painting this forest scene, David Wagoner’s poem ‘Lost’ came to mind.
The poem speaks about feeling lost when in fact all we need to do is be still, honour our feeling but not to let it encompass us. The forest knows where we are just as good friends know when we despair.
I find light filtering through the trees very emotive. The sense that even though we are deep within a forest, the light will find find us and guide us.
Be still, listen and open your heart.
