The secret gallery’s blog

Maybe the first secret gallery in Doolin, Co. Clare, Ireland

The Artist’s Sketchbook for Bonnie Quinn Cotter

with 2 comments

Silence of early morning, interrupted by a bird.

I am guessing a magpie, but I do not know my bird sounds.

However, I am in the mood and mindset for guessing this morning.

Everything feels a little less harsh, where all the pieces of memories and sights and smells and thoughts infuse.

To make a misty hopeful feeling you imagine you could build with, like fantastic floating rocks.

This fairytale creation, fed from those first perfectly chosen stones.

Was it me that placed them there or was it the universe,

It must have been, I almost forgot!

  1. My 2 daughters and I were on holiday in Ireland over the Easter weekend and called in to see your gallery and I just wanted to say how much we liked your work

    • Thank you very much, I am glad you like my work. I have just created a new studio space upstairs so I can make studio based work again larger than sketch book size, and know where my materials are, I cant wait. My studio was in the larger gallery room before we opened up this season, it is quite refreshing to move it around though. Good luck with your own art. I hope you get to come and visit us again sometime. All the best Marianne
