‘The Dardanelles’ was one of my first large paintings. I made it on the shore of Lough Mask after a day fishing (getting drenched!) with my father. As is a very strict tradition, we break for lunch (flasks of tea and ham sandwiches) on the Dardanelles, a small outcrop of islands in the middle of the lake. Fishermen assemble to tell each other lies and forecast further rain. Despite the lack of lavatory and the very inclement conditions, I love it – there is a sort of ‘communion’ to these little islands where I feel completely ‘at one’ with nature and my ‘ol Pop.
