Bog Fire, ©John O’Grady, 2013
Acrylic on Panel 6″x 6″
Bog fires are a common sight in Ireland.
I created this painting to convey the drama of the scene.
The grey/white smoke billows on the horizon and contrasts with the deep chocolate browns of the turf.
Bog cotton flowers in June. In my painting they add a delicate touch that contrasts with the background.
