Description

Walking through the village, St.Flannans Cathedral gives a lovely viewpoint towards Limerick. St.Flannans Cathedral was A Romanesque cathedral built in the 1180s by Donal O’Brien but was destroyed soon afterwards. A new Gothic style cathedral, was completed on the same site in the 13th century.

The old canal banks, railway lines and narrow streets provide a delightful walk through this village.

The beauty of the lake water and famous marinas make it popular for sailing clubs and water sports. The wind can pick up quickly on Lough Derg making it an idea location for laser racing. Just upstream, a new university marina caters for the hundreds of leisure craft that make Killaloe/Ballina one of the best centres for water activities.

Mount

The mount is a conservation board with a white core and is acid-free of the highest standard. This will protect the art from discolouration.

The frame is a contemporary shadow box creating a frame depth of 44mm. There is a spacer between the glass and the picture to create an offset. The mount board is cotton white. The colour of the frames is limed white.

This is the standard frame supplied.

Quality

I use only artist quality paints from various suppliers. I want to ensure that the art you buy will last a lifetime. The paper used is beautiful textured cotton,  300lbs -140lbs which is a heavy paper. This paper needs to be heavy to take the 30+ washes I use for building up depth and colour. Each of the paintings are scanned and then printed onto cotton paper using archival inks. The print then is checked that the full colour and texture is in line with fine art techniques.
