3 dimensional irish landscape

I've converted one of my paintings into a 3d image.  Just cross your eyes so the two images meet in the middle and take a visit to the Irish countryside.

you may want to click the image for a larger version and take a step back from the computer screen to get best results.

Many more to come.  I'll convert some night scenes for my next post.

Oil on Canvas

Even though this painting is from last year, I just posted it on etsy, so i thought I would share it here as well...

This painting titled "Oil on Canvas" was painted shortly after the deepwater horizon oil spill in 2010. It is the first piece in my series of Oil platforms which I am still working on.

My oil platform paintings are viewed by some as a testament to awe inspiring feats of engineering by mankind.

Others view them as a representation of all that is ugly in man's creations and our never ending hunger for oil which is surely harming the environment in which we live.

To me they stand as icons. These oil platforms are highly recognizable, monumental structures, which represent the things we value most as a society. I try to represent them as they are; huge and powerful machines within a beautiful environment.
