sometimes you just need more space ... “The sacred Three To save, To shield, To surround The hearth, The house, The household This eve, This night, Oh! This eve, This night, And every night, Each single night. Amen” ...

Home 2 (detail) ... oil on canvas 20 x 20 the journey along belfast lough is always emotional ... on one hand a return to home on another an ending not just of place but of people. Norman MacCaig “Everything’s different now from what everything was. Good But I like it too when I look at a thing I’ve known for years, like a landscape, and you think they’re just the same, they haven’t changed a bit.” #laganoarsman #riverlagan #irishart #seascapes #belfast #visitbelfast #oilpainting #canvasgallery #blackcanvasgallery #normanmaccaig #tired
