I was going through old pics of my trip to England and Ireland from a couple of years ago. I was looking for lush green images of the English countryside... but instead, a handful of Irish landscapes jumped out at me.
While Ireland IS lush and green, it is also a wonder of grey and black.
It is blue grey water.
Mountains and hills and near black rocks.
It is rocky seasides and beaches.
And ragged brambles and jumbles of plants jetting out from stony roadsides.
While I was dreaming of green English countrysides... these Irish landscapes yelled "NO! Paint me!"
And so, I did.
