Whilst out on my rambles, I come across familiar sites and places. The church depicted is one such place that I have passed on numerous occasions. It's in a sleepy little village a few miles from my house. This particular day, the church was back lit against the sky and hills and I was interested in the profile the church made against the sky, thus transforming the ordinary familiar everyday scene, for me at least. Oil on gessoed paper 5x7 ins. Palette knife impasto and brush.

Church on a hill, oil study on paper by Joseph Mahon

It's never too late to learn new things, it is often said. I have been painting all my life, and decided to embrace technology and show my art work online. I love watercolour painting and oil painting. The subjects that attract me are varied, from a landscape to a seascape. Genre scenes of everyday life, beach scenes and figurative.
