Dublin at Mixed+Media
I spent several weeks in Dublin in the winter and spring of 2009. I loved the city on grey days and on sunny days – both personalities fit it well. I was away from my painting studio, so I spent my time there exploring photography and doing quick sketches around the city. I guess that’s why it felt like a good subject to which to return for this mixed media project – somehow I associate it with works on paper.

I’ve only done one other finished piece featuring Dublin. This one incorporates paper that I picked up there – pieces of a city map and other local items. If you look closely, you can make out a pint of Guinness in the sky.
