Paintings of Tipperary -- Garnakilka and Foilnamon

Garnakilka and Foilnamon

The above is the third painting of Tipperary landscapes which I have been commissioned to do, and I have one more which will be posted this week too. I have about and hour or so left to finish it. This was finished in mid-Jan. The name is the two townsland that are depicted, with Foilnamon being the hill/mountain on the left and Garnakilka central. Hope people who know this area can recognise it as correct, as I have taken a lot of time to get all the fields and houses in the right places. Enjoy and feel free to leave comments. The last commission is of Upperchurch village and will be up maybe tomorrow. That's it for now, Jim

Hi james,

Was googling Garnakilka when I came across this. I am the proud owner of this painting which is hanging in my living room. It is a truly beautiful view and often as I drive or walk back to our home I think how lucky I am to live here but also how proud I am to be from these hills of Upperchurch. The painting was commissioned by my parents as a wedding gift. Thanks you for capturing it so well and keep enjoying what you do.

Thankyou Mary. Upperchurch really is a special place in this world. I am glad I was able to capture the landscape in the four paintings. Thankyou for leaving your comment. It is great to hear from people who have my paintings.
