Title         Election Edition
Medium  oil on linen
Size          25x30cm
Year         2008-2010

I returned to live and work in Co.Kildare, fron Dublin, in late 2007.
I began to pay more attention to the Newspaper - it felt familiar.

The American Elections caught my attention. I listened to Barrack
Obama's "Dreams of my father" and "the Audacity of hope" on audio CD.
This is the First Family having won the Election Race in 2008.

This work is painted on linen. It is inspired by people and events and
the front page of the Irish Independent Newspaper.

This painting was exhibited in the Royal Hibernian Academy
180th Annual Exhibition
This same painting was also mentioned in an article by
Brian McEvera in the 2010 Summer edition of the Irish Art's Review.
