Beautifully evocative, ‘A Hard Road’ can have many potential meanings – and the narrative is up to you, the viewer, to determine for yourself. Full of nostalgic references, from the gorgeous wee cottage to the mountains in the distance and the somewhat moody sky above, McCaul’s rich colour palette really adds to that emotional stirring. Perhaps it signifies the drive home, now filled with sentimental yearnings for the past, or perhaps it signifies leaving home, driving away and saying goodbye to those you love. But either way, the richness, the moodiness and the simplicity of this painting, truly inspires ‘the feels’ in all those who stand before it, for whatever reason.

McCaul has work hanging in private collections around the world and at this stage has amassed a legion of loyal followers. His work is striking and impactful when hanging.

Your Shipping Choices Explained

NOTE: Due to Covid 19 areas are experiencing delays and some restrictions on deliveries – please enquire directly with us if you are concerned. 

We generally use the postal service here in Ireland, called An Post. It is very reliable and we take the utmost care in packing all our pieces professionally to ensure that have the very best chance of arriving safely in their destination.  This option would be at your own risk.

We can also offer you our own cargo insurance at a reasonable price – weight and piece dependent. Please enquire with us for this option. (This will also be packed by us and carried by An Post as above)

Taking into account the delicate nature and cost of your purchase, if you would prefer it travel in a specialized and insured Art Box with an outside Art Handler, then this can be arranged.  For paintings up to and including the size 120cm x 100 cm – prices with an insured professional courier, range from €75 – all the way up to €475 (size and location dependent) NOTE: This option will take considerably longer as we will have to outsource it and get quotes for you before we proceed.

For paintings or items falling outside of those largest dimensions then a further discussion is required – as it may need to have a bespoke crate to be built for it and a further cost will apply.
