You are Everything VIII, ©John O’Grady
16″ x 16″ x 1.75″, oil on deep edge canvas, ready to hang.


This painting explores the wonderment of nature and invites you to take a moment to reflect and contemplate. It’s a romantic theme I return to often because it’s worth exploring.

The unusual colour arrangement gives this painting an added magical quality while retaining a dream-like feel.

We are on the bogland covered with warm, orange-red grasses looking towards the sea and the sun setting behind the horizon line.

To stand still before nature and, through all our senses, by just being, feel it’s all one is incredibly powerful.

This series seek to recapture this experience through colour and mark making.

I’d love to hear what you think.
