Artist’s Eye Ireland: Traditional Cottage in Doolin

Doolin Cottage by Charolette A Coulter

Traditional Cottage in Doolin, Charolette A Coulter www.facebook.com/pages/Coulter-Gallery-Art-by-Charolette-Coulter/125004894232102

The West of Ireland is known for preserving the “old ways,” so it’s no surprise that Charolette Coulter was inspired to capture this traditional cottage near Doolin, County Clare, with her acrylics on watercolor board.

Charolette moved to Ireland from the US in 1998 and has relied on her art and her wits have housed and fed her ever since.
