While on my yearly artist residency I capture the treasures that are found in the back roads of Ireland. These views and wonderfully sweet creatures all find their way into my camera and then in turn my easel to become expressive works of art as oil on board. This show will feature a series of works that will take you to Ireland's West Coast and it's Wild Atlantic Way, as you sit and relax at The Celtic Cup.
Even the winter landscape in Ireland has amazing color! This shot was taken in January by a friend. I couldn’t resist and Patrick was thrilled to have me work it up as a painting. He had gone on a hike on a beautiful sunny day just check out all the colors that are going to come through on this one! #ireland2018, #irishcoast, #americanirishartist, #margaretdukeman, #oilonboard
Check out an artist I always enjoy seeing when I am in Allihies, Ireland. Bill has a most interesting story and his "ten finger brushes" style is one that doesn't disappoint! Check him out: http://www.billgriffinart.com/
Take a day trip and head to The Celtic Cup in Tullahoma where I just hung a new show of work. This is such a wonderful hidden gem and well worth the beautiful drive for a cup of joe, gelato and amazing homemade soups and desserts. #theroadlesstraveled #americanirishartist #ireland_inspired #stpatsday #celtic #gaelic #wonderfultown #oilpaintings #tennessee_life #irishpub
The paintings are framed and wrapped for transport. Looking forward to the show at The Celtic Cup in Tullahoma starting next week. Break the Winter Blues and head their way. You can’t beat their soups, amazing homemade treats and alcohol-infused gelato! Check them out on Facebook also.
