Ireland Calling

"Ireland Calling"

10 x 20

I don't have a lot of desire to travel to other countries, but Ireland is one of the places I would love to visit. This landscape is part of the Virtual Paintout contest. It is a fun contest that gives you a place on the planet to visit with Google Maps' Street View feature. You travel the area and look for a fun place to paint. When I saw this view I knew I had to paint it. Very serene and the famous Ireland green.


  1. Dear Karla,
    What a beautiful blog. I saw your painting on the Virtual Paintout FB page and linked here. The music sets such a lovely tone for your work and words.
    Happy Holidays to you and your family, and snowy greetings from Maine.

  2. Thank you Linda for your kind words, and Happy Holidays to you and yours! Karla

  3. I visited Ireland last year. It was magnificent. I couldn't get over the "ruralness" of it for being such an old country. I live in Maine and Ireland is about the size of Maine. As we drove and took thousands of photos I was awestruck by the beauty. The coastline is truly breathtaking. The people were so friendly and laid back. We felt relaxed and welcomed. My husband would move there in a heartbeat if I said yes...
