 A Forest Sounds Like a Ship at Sea:

Irish trees in Ireland!

Day 18 Remote Residency at Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre, Skibbereen, Ireland, 7/18/22 to 8/13/22,  Maria Driscoll McMahon checking in from New York State

I am having a great time participating in this residency, but the thing I miss the most about doing it remotely is not being able to interact person-to-person with the people of Ireland, as well as with visitors from all over the world at the Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre. Fortunately,  I can still engage even from my studio in New York State!

I recently sent out a request for photos of indigenous trees in Ireland.  Margaret Manning, artist and poet from Skibbereen, so generously shared these photos she took of trees all near Skibb!! I am over the moon delighted and grateful for that. Not surprisingly, some of her photos have been published!  

In addition to her talent for photography, Margaret is also a poet. It is so wonderful to have these visuals and to make this connection with Margaret!
