An Original Cusack

Much to my regret now, I never particularly learned nor pursued artistic skills, but this painting of St Patrick’s Church in Monaghan Town is one of the few fruits of art class from school days we’ve bothered preserving.

I think I was about 15 when this was done; the architecture was from a photo just to have something to stand out against the sunset. Our teacher was very good, but I was a poor student, and inattentive.

It puts me in mind of a spike, flanked by two smaller spikes, before a number of lower spikes, against an evening sky.

Andrew, I had no idea you were good at painting. I think this is very good, especially for a “poor student and inattentive” If that’s the product of poor study, well, you’ve got talent and should keep painting.

Funny that you chose the Protestant church and not JJ McCarthy’s Catholic cathedral

…but your graduated wash of the sky obviously shows some implicit potential, no?
