to bring serenity to your mind and your home with paintings depicting Irish places that make you feel in Awe of Nature, feel in a deep connection with the beauty of nature.
Survey, Planning, Funding
Started in April 2022
Started in July 2022
In 2024 or 2025
In April and May 2022, I asked my community the following question:
Is there a specific spot or view in Ireland which made you feel in awe of nature?
I received more than 1,200 answers. And I went through each of them. Here are the Top 10 answers:
Cliffs of Moher: 28%
Giant's Causeway: 10%
Slieve League: 3.1%
Croagh Patrick / Clew Bay: 2.7%
Mourne Mountains: 2.7%
Inishmore / Dun Aengus: 2.5%
Slea Head, Dingle: 2.4%
Burren, co. Clare: 2.4%
Lady's View, co. Kerry: 1.9%
My project is to travel to at least 6 of these locations and to paint Plein Air (=outdoors) from these locations on medium-sized canvases and then paint large canvases from my studios inspired by my Plein Air paintings.
I will then organize an exhibition "In Awe of Nature" in 2024 or 2025 to show this body of work.
This is a big project, and that requires a big budget, the most part being travel expenses and materials.
If you want to help me make this project a reality, you can support me with a donation.
In exchange for your support, you will get access to exclusive content, video calls, perks, discount, early access, etc.
