New painting: Colm Mac Con Iomaire

I have completed my new painting of our friend, the musician and fiddle player Colm Mac Con Iomaire.
The painting is a portrait showing how his music weaves together images, stories and mood.

Below I have included Colm's wonderful piece 'Aishling Eimear' so that you can  experience his music.

Please click on pictures to enlarge.

The finished painting: The Fiddle Player.
Art cards & prints are available to order - without wording. 


Before the 'magic' is added



Please listen and watch the video of  Colm's  'Aishling Eimear' - 'Emer's Dream':






 'Emer's Dream' is on Colm's CD The Hare’s Corner - Cúinne an Ghiorria which you can find on iTunes here
For more about Colm and his music please visit his website here
