This is a beautiful stretch of the river Suir in county Tipperary near the Abbey ruins at Athassel. I painted this in high summer and while I was there I saw a kingfisher and an otter popped it's head up briefly. I like the contrast of the bright water and sky against the deep shadows under the trees. In such a beautiful and tranquil place I have a feeling of timelessness, even though summer comes and goes, in such an ancient landscape it feels as if the that moment could last forever with the birds singing above and the hum of insects busy among the wild flowers.
