I have a handful of photos of beautiful landscapes like this with a charming little figure sitting on the edge of an overlook enjoying the solitary view. That’s one of my professors from our 2004 trips and he is wonderful.
I may have to paint them all and label them: Find Hadden.
Delightful time painting this one. Except for all those rocks. Whew.
Tracked it down and this is Blackhead Lightkeepers Houses near Carrickfergus.
This is one of those spots in 2004 that I still vividly remember. I remember walking those stairs, the spray of the water lightly caressing my face, and the deep blue of the sky reflecting in the water. It is a magical spot and I’m still so thankful I have that grainy photo, and now this attempt at capturing both the photo and my memory of it.
