I wanted to paint something local and I've always loved the Rockabill Lighthouse. It is something many of the people of Skerries see everyday, but often we don't actually see the 'familiar'. I'm also facinated by the ever changing skies and really enjoyed painting this sky in oils.
Medium: oil on canvas
Dimensions: 11.5" x 11.5"
framed size 23" x 23"
Michele is 50+ year old . . . very busy amateur who enjoys art class for relaxation and pleasure. To date Michele hasn't been inclined to enter for exhibitions and competitions, so she has no awards, and hasn't had solo exhibitions etc.
Currently Michele works full time as Medical Scientist and has a busy family life. However, Michele will be the first to say that's she's looking forward to a time when she can spend much more time on her art.
Mainly I do my art at a weekly art class. I really enjoy working with oils but also do like trying different media. I find it challenging to try different techniques, but that's what makes painting so fascinating.
