Life Imitates Art – Weekly Photo Challenge

Paul Henry, an Irish artist, from Belfast is best known for his paintings of landscapes of the west of Ireland. Many of his pictures depict white-washed, thatched cottages and puffy white clouds in blue skies, with mountain in the background. I remember being taught to love his paintings by Sister Teresa, a nun, who taught us art at school.



Many of the cottages Henry painted now lie in ruins like the one above. I played a bit with a photograph to try and get a “Paul Henry” effect, though his pictures appear much simpler and the colours more muted.

Inspired by this week’s photo challenge.
