Philip Brennan’s WANDERINGS,
A County Clare artist’s year ’
A ramble through the seasons as they affect people, creatures and places in Clare, Ireland and abroad, with six paintings in watercolour or oils for each month. In his new book there is a definite move into the realms of season and nature as they affect us daily. Writer and broadcaster Cormac MacConnell writes ‘…on so many occasions you are likely to see the hidden figures, the shapes and the faces and the forms which often inhabit his waters, his foliage, his crashing surfs, his sundrenched or frosty hills and mountains. And with each painting, from frosted Winter to sparkling Summer, words that blaze just as vividly.’

Available in hard- and soft-cover.
Unique images of the artist’s native County Clare’
Paintings and sketches in a variety of media, but mainly in watercolour. Entirely devoted to County Clare and the first such book to do this. Writer and historian, Hugh H.L. Weir described it as covering ‘by evocative, accomplished and beautiful illustrations …with incredible versatility both with brush and pen…..the storms and the calms of Kilbaha, the summer birdsong of Loop Head, the tumbling waters below Moananagh bridge, Inis Cealtra, Bunratty, the Burren and even sensed the battle cries of 1318 Dysert O’Dea’. Internationally-renowned publication, ‘Ireland of the Welcomes’ complimented the book with an eight-page spread featuring paintings and critique. The book featured on local best-seller listings.
