art Blue Boat On Ballyconneely Bay was painted in the back seat of our rental car during a light rain. A man drove up next to us, got out and took a photo. He then knocked on the window and said it is much easier to paint back in his studio in Texas. Yes, maybe, but was he full of mussels and warm soda bread? This is painted on an old piece ofIrish roofing slate.

Blue Boat On Ballyconneely Bay

What a beautiful light-blue boat
Attached to a bright-pink float
The water was blue and red, the sky was gray
Green shallows over yellow sand at Ballyconneely Bay
We were reasonably happy and quite well fed
We had just consumed a plate of mussels and warm soda bread
