Artists Eye: Hitching a Ride
Hitching a Ride by Martin Driscoll www.sunflowerfineart.com
Martin Driscoll splits his time between Texas in the U.S. and County Kerry in Ireland. Inspiration for his paintings often begins with an emotional tug towards a subject matter… a gesture in an old photo or observing someone in a restaurant, a museum, a bookstore or where ever.
From that gesture, he says he is immediately transported back in time to remembering an aunt, uncle, grandparent, parent, or some relative who had that same way of standing or tilting their head. Suddenly, the image leads into a daydream that make him to wonder what they may be talking about or, what their lives are like. He describes his paintings this way, “ All my paintings are a prayer, a song, a laugh, and tell old tales.“
