Rhododendron Broadwalk Kilmacurragh

I painted the original Rhododendron Broadwalk Kilmacurragh, now sold and hanging in Canada, back in 2014 as part of the “My Place on Canvas” project. Members of the public were invited to submit their favorite Wicklow location and explain why it is special to them. I then chose the best ones and went out and painted them. The result was an exhibition of thirty five paintings at the Courthouse Art Center, Tinahely, Co. Wicklow.

Katherine O’Daly nominated Kilmacurragh Arboretum, Rathdrum, Co. Wicklow. She convinced me easily of her heartfelt and deep connection to this place, this is what she wrote:

“When I think of my place I feel…nourished…like I’ve spent time with a friend. To me Kilmacurragh is a place that is intimate, familiar and peaceful, somewhere to breathe deeper and slower. I love when there’s no one about and sometimes I wish that my own footsteps wouldn’t interrupt the beautiful quiet. It’s a place of old and new stories and that adds to the special feeling about it too. Throughout the seasons there’s always something to look forward to when I walk there – the big old trees, drifts of crocuses and daffodils in spring, vibrant carpets of rhododendron flowers at Easter, wildflowers in summer, autumn colour and the stillness and slowness of winter.”

“My Place on Canvas” Press Release November 2014

Rod Coyne paints sentiments and memories En plein air*. His upcoming exhibition at the Courthouse Tinahely is a singular mission to capture the favorite Wicklow scenes of others. Rod has motivated people to consider and articulate their relationship with their landscape. Then he has retold that story through paint. The result is a compelling mix of paintings and text called “My Place on Canvas”.

Notable are contributions from author Paul Howard aka Ross O’Carroll Kelly, former Ireland rugby international Shane Byrne, lawyer to the stars Dr. Gerald Kean and Ireland’s most respected politician TD Stephen Donnelly. This multi-faceted undertaking saw Coyne marching from the mountains to the sea, or flanked by deer in a forest at dusk, and lunching with The Hon. Garech Browne in Luggala estate.
