"STONE BRIDGE" - New, original oil painting by Mike Callahan

"Stone Bridge"
18" x 24"
Oil on Canvas

This is perhaps one of the most magical spots we visited in Ireland this past summer (though there are many)!  This stone bridge crosses a small tributary of the Owenmore River in Ballynahinch.  Just an awesome place to visit!

"CAED MILE FAILTE" - New Original Oil Painting by Mike Callahan

"Caed Mile Failte"
20" x 16"
Oil on Canvas

The red door in Ireland means "welcome" and typifies the Irish spirit.  We saw red doors all over the emerald isle when we travelled the country this past summer.  The title of this painting literally means "one hundred thousand welcomes" in Gaelic. This particular door was one of the many we saw in the section of Dublin with the Georgian architecture...simply amazing!
