Title         Jim Fenelon from Ballytarsna Co.Carlow
Medium  oil on linen
Size          15.5x25cm
Year         2008-2010

My cousin Kenneth from London asked me to paint a portrait
of our Uncle Jim in 2008. I completed my painting in 2010.
Kenneth spent many summers in Ireland on the farm
with Jim.
Here Jim stands by the Carroad Field, with the
Wicklow hills
visible in the far distance.
Jim is deeply loved. He died, in peace
at home, in 2009, surrounded by family.

This was the third year that I was honored to accept an invitation, on behalf of the President and the Council of the Royal Hibernian Academy to exhibit a painting
in the
Annual Exhibition.  My second work 'Election Edition' was also accepted
in the Open Category of the same show.
