art Derryclare Lough is not far from Recess on the road to Clifden in Connemara, Co. Galway Ireland.
This is an unusual setting of a small island in the lake with wonderful trees and is well worth stopping to admire
the scenery. Located in a valley between the Twelve Bens to the west and the Maumturk Mountains to the east
it is popular place for photographers. We stopped and this painting is of that moment. The poem is from a
post card sent to friends who stayed home.

Post Card From Ireland

We are here again, in this land of beauty
Just the two of us, Patricia and me
A land covered now and then by passing clouds
The magnificent colors muted as if by shrouds
We painted scenes around Black Sod Bay
Under clouds both black and gray
At the pier we bought a lobster and a fish
Home to the cottage where we cooked a marvelous dish
We will be home soon again
And we hope to see you then
Wish you were here
Sharing the beer
