In the summer of 1998 I had the pleasure of attending and speaking at the Yeats Festival in Sligo, Ireland. While there I got to meat cool people like Sarah Bowen-Walsh and Seamus Heaney! I spent 6 weeks there and got to explore the gorgeous countryside to my hearts delight. One day while riding around Knocknarea Mountain I spied this bull with a twisted set of horns standing in a field that overlooked the bay. Meanwhile,across the water and the mist, was Benbulben Mountain. Luckily I had my traveling water color palette and pad. The bull was quite kind and stood still for quite a while. This was the result.  Water color, gouache, 1998.
