'End of the little ice age' series was made during a residency at the Cill Rialaig Artist Retreat in January 2013. One night there was a heavy falling of snow which sparked the idea of melting ice revealing etched rock beneath it. I worked with plaster to create textures, rubbing in raw pigment, wiping back and a final pouring of plaster to finish the painting.
