Description Stone cottages are found throughout Ireland reminding us of the homes of our ancestors. Today they are still occupied by families that have owned them for generations keeping a living link to the past.
PAUL NEALON, ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement After forty-five years in the business world, doing financial management for businesses and trusts, I retired and returned to painting. While I had not painted in thirty years, I had worked in clay doing pottery on the wheel and hand building of Irish cottages.
I paint realistic scenes of places I have visited. My hope is to share my experiences with those who see my paintings so they too can enjoy the beauty as I have. My Irish pictures feature the landscape and buildings that characterize the country. The mills and other buildings are found throughout the rural America. My coastal paintings are from the South Carolina lowlands.
