Memories of Connemara, Ireland


Memories of Connemara
11" by 14" acrylic on wrap around canvas 

Last week I worked on this piece while I was with my students at Harbor's Edge.  One of the ladies said I should stop and not add another thing so I decided to post it and share another place in Ireland that brings back special memories of my childhood.  I visited several times while growing up and stayed with my Mom's very large family.  On one visit, My Aunt Una, took us to the west of Ireland which has a very rugged beauty. It is part of the county of Galway. It was a very special time spent with my Mom and her sister. 
Now to that unnamed Rooster......

AND THE NAME CHOSEN IS...

......Shine The Light On Me! 

Once again I was overwhelmed by the response that I had to draw a name and I used random.org to choose!  This one was submitted by Ann Tynes.  Thank you Ann!  I also want to thank Jerry, Maryann, Nancy, Rae, Sharon, Kathryn, and Claudia C.  If I forgot anyone, I am really sorry.  I got a flurry of responses on my blog and on facebook so I hope I got all of them!  Some of the name suggestions were Bright Eyed And Bushy Tailed, Cock Of The Walk, Center Stage, Shine, I'm Gonna Let It Shine, Lovely Light, My Feathered Friend, Ernesto, Barnyard Bill, King Of The Roost, William The Great, Robinson, Handsome In Pink, Yes, I'm Wearing Pink- Wanna Make Something Of It?, Cogburn, Cockeral, Gallus, and Gallo.  I wasn't kidding when I said I had gotten a bunch of good names.  You may see a rooster in the future with one of these names!  Thank you again.  Hope you have a great day and if you have any questions about a painting, contact me at normasart@cox.net.
