Running through the Ring of Kerry in Ireland is the Gap of Dunlow. Against the advice of several locals I took my rental car through the gap. Navigating through the narrow, very rocky road I understood the warnings. A couple of vehicles coming the other way created a real negotiating ordeal. There is hardly enough room for one car, much less two! But it was well worth the effort. This is one spot where an old small bridge spanned a little creek. Painting a place like this takes me back, and I daydream of returning. This painting is on stretched canvas with stapled edges and will need a frame for display.
There are more places Kent Sullivan would like to paint than he ever will be able. Employing many of the Hudson River School methods in his landscapes, Kent captures the ephemeral interactions of clouds, sun and earth with his delicate use of color and gesture. His work is published in two prominent books: "Art of the National Parks" and "Picturing Florida." He has lectured at museums and been sought after by many large corporations. “Several years ago I had the incredible fortune of being part of the NASA art program. Five paintings are now part of the Smithsonian Collection. At one gathering at the Kennedy Space Center, Leonard Nimoy came up and asked me for my autograph!”

The painting was purchased because of its colors, the theme and Mr. Sullivan's profile. Mr. Sullivan thank you for this beautiful artwork which will be enjoyed by the family for years to come. The promptness in shipping this art work to me is appreciated.- M Sobko
I purchased Still Water Shadows. I just completed getting it framed and it looks lovely in my living room. Every time I look at it, it reminds of growing up in upstate New York. Thanks.- K Harrison
