Each year for the last twelve years, I've traveled to the west coast of Ireland–Valentia Island to be exact. Every morning when I awaken, I see this amazing view of the sun rising above the distant mountains, sparkling across the channel water that separates Valentia Island from Portmagee. It is always a beautiful, inspiring way to start the next day of my journey. This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Roxanne

Some paintings have the power to draw a person from across the room. Those are the artworks that Roxanne Steed loves the most. For her, the two best things about a painting are color and texture. To add interesting edges to her paintings, she uses everything from a palette knife to a squeegee. She loves celebrating the beauty of life and enjoys gardening — including “therapeutic weeding” — and planning where to travel next. She has traveled to Ireland for many years to paint.
