my postings are shamefully out of date - so here i begin again. it is now the end of my second peripatetic year, with little desire to drop anchor. my current view at cill rialaig artists residency looks over ballinskelligs bay, in the far remote southwestern iveragh peninsula. my month long residency is in full swing, and i'm dragging my feet to keep time at bay. my book about living as an artist in residence around the world is making good progress here, and i expect to have it self-published by mid july - check in soon. but i can't resist getting my hands into the paint and charcoal, so will post some of the work shortly. for now, i will share with you a look at my stone cottage and the view beyond.
