Padraig's Achill (Island, Co Mayo, Ireland)

I spent a stunning weekend on Achill Island in Co Mayo, Connemara, Galway, working with Dublin-born artist Padraig MacCaul a couple of years ago ... and this little abstract landscape was one of the jewels to come out of it.
In true Irish style the weekend saw rain, sunshine, wind and calm. Stir that in with the wildness and "aloneness" of the countryside and you have an exhilarating mix indeed. I hope I caught it all in this painting.
