Walking and cycling around the coastal landscape of the loop head peninsula is one of renowned artist, Ruth Wood’s, real pleasures and one of the big advantages to living and working in such a beautiful area. The striking views there are in part due to the low horizon, the light and of course, the small farm husbandry practices. Ruth created her most recent edition of paintings to capture the pastural beauty of her surroundings

These old haybarns are few and far between now but were everywhere as we grew up here in rural Ireland. Those that remain have a real unconventional appeal; apart from their nostalgic value, their structural form is really quite interesting and in each case, totally unique. The rusty tin has developed its own incredible range of colours and the shapes are changing as the barn decays. Ruth has really captured the beauty in this old agricultural unit and the warmth of the meadow running up to it. Great striking colour palette as always – this is a superb Ruth Wood original acrylic.

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.
