2018 "Walk Across Ireland" Calendars

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.

A beautiful cherry tree! The bark and branches of this tree add so much to the beauty of these flowers.

The dance of the opening of the tulip tree. These flowers appear as ballerinas balancing on the branches.

Spring has sprung on this beautiful day and the colors are so incredibly beautiful. Who else wishes these would stay around all year long?

Sunday was such a beautiful day for a walk. I couldn’t resist the vantage point of this creek going straight into the distant mountains and the cobalt sky reflecting off the water. #Icansmellspring, #freshandfrisky #countrysidecreek #artist #margaretdukeman

Nothing more fun than a new palate of paint and all the possibilities it brings! Let’s see what kind of music these blobs can sing. #margaretdukeman #americanirishartist #creativitysquared #instagramartists

It’s fun to see the progression through photos as a work of art comes together. I love peeking through the Abbey window at the countryside. #irelandruins #viewthroughawindow #irelandtrip #oilpaintings #Irish #gaelic

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.
