Original oil painting by celebrated Limerick artist ‘Gillian Kenny Shinnors’.

‘Relaxing by the Sea’ – imbues a feeling of light hearted happiness – lazy, sunny afternoons, lying against the warm wood of the boats – one of life’s special moments, depicted vividly in oils by this extraordinary artist.

Taking her inspiration from the ‘affectionate nostalgia’ of the past; of being on holidays in the West of Ireland – old postcards, sunny days on the beach, the environment, the architecture of the time, the attire, the people – and all these memories being skilfully painted in oils using a colour palette that nods to the really distinct colouration of early Kodachrome photography. Her ability to depict these seemingly every-day moment’s so beautifully and with such a raw, contemporary edge, is remarkable.

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.
