Flame Tree In Peat Bog – 58 x 51 xm
an original mixed media painting by Northern Irish artist Margaret B.
This was painted on a boiling hot day. Sitting in a peat bog in Connemara, near Clifton, in the west of Ireland, I was trying to get the feeling of the tremendous heat, hence the huge sun.
I used inks and acrylic paint and had to sketch very quickly as everything was drying up.
A man suddenly started playing ancient Irish melodies on an harmonica. Just magic!
