‘A New Path’ is an original wool painting and was made as part of the ‘La Bealtaine – Ar Slieve Gullion’, Caóilfionn’s first solo collection. Take a gentle stroll along a woodland path and delight wave away the stress of life.
Revisiting old childhood walks along the river from Forkhill in South Armagh across an invisible border to Urnaí North Louth and sharing stories and songs along the way was a delight during lockdown and was the inspiration for this piece. Creating new memories from old ones. An age old path trod by poets O’Doirnin and McCooey now trod by much smaller feet, yet equally as magic with minds full of wonder. The summer light through the trees casting a magical glow captures our imagination as we wonder where this new path will lead us.

This original artwork with its vibrant tones and textures sits equally as well in a traditional country styled home as it does in a modern open plan space.
A reminder of the Irish Landscape this original wool painting is beautifully framed, locally, in an expertly crafted white wood, ready to hang, with an information panel on the reverse, making it a beautiful ready to give gift from Ireland.
All of my work is inspired by and made proudly in Ireland in my studio in Bridge Street at 300 year old grain store. My framed works have been posted successfully all across the world without worry. They are packed beautifully and carefully in eco friendly packaging to ensure a safe arrival to their new destination. A joy to open and treasure.
