Neil Carrigan RIP

I am posting these few paintings of late Plein Eire artist Neil Carrigan. It is only right to remove Neil's name from our current membership but I am sure his many friends and fellow artists would appreciate being able to refer to his work from time to time, His work and courageous words are his memorial.

Thank you! I am looking forward to see where this new connection leads me. I havae begun to paint for the new seaon here in northwest Denmark. If anyone ever comes this way, be sure to let me know and we can paint together - I have lived here for 14 years and there are many intriguing sites. I know it´s a long long way from Ireland ...but, not so far from Germany for example!

Thanks so much! I'm looking forward to the interaction. Just returned from a 4 week painting spree in Ireland. We rented a cottage outside of Bantry and I painted all over West Cork and Kerry. Had a great time but wish I'd known about this site. I didn't see another person painting.
