From my ‘Ballads to the Bog’ series, ‘Blanket Bog’ was painted during my first painting residency at Cill Rialaig Artists’ Retreat in Kerry. I went with the intention of painting the sea but was completely overwhelmed by the bogs and spent all my time painting there. It was glorious. I love the abundance of our bogs, their ever-changing colours and the fact they are a living, breathing thing.
