Animal beauty captured in Paul's 'Field of Dreams'

'Field of Dreams' is the appealing title of a new series of original prints created by the Wexford artist Paul Maloney.

The colourful prints in an impressionist style are currently on display at the Denis Collins Gallery in Custom House Quay.

To mark the launch, Paul gave a live demonstration of portrait painting for visitors to the gallery.

The prints are of original pictures painted by Paul of horses, cattle and other animals in the fields around his home in Barntown.

The paintings reflect the spirit of the animal in a certain time and place and are mostly set in the 'golden hour' of morning or evening.

The 'Field of Dreams' prints come in five different framed sizes and each one is in a limited edition signed and numbered by the artist.

Originally from Hill Street, Paul is a graduate of the National College of Art and Design.

He specialised in pottery after leaving college and runs Paul Maloney Pottery in Ballydinas, Barntown.

In recent years, the talented Wexfordman has also devoted time to his love of painting. He has exhibited at home and abroad in group shows and as a solo artist. He is a regular exhibitor at the Denis Collins Gallery and the Rosslare Gallery.

He has won prizes at Europe's largest plein air painting festival, 'Art in the Open' which is held annually in Wexford.

'Field of Dreams"'will be exhibited at the gallery until June 8.
