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.
