I was talking with someone from Donegal the other day and he mentioned how
the bog was turning a beautiful rich orange colour.

I responded by saying it sounded like a perfect subject for a painting.

Remembering the glow of the bog in the evening under a brooding sky became the starting
point of this latest painting.
