Postcards of oil paintings

Postcards of my oil paintings

Over the years I have built a collection of postcards of my oil paintings. It matters to me that the images on the cards are accurate and I have walked away from many printers simply because I wasn't happy.

A few years ago I painted a scene closely related to Gortahig on the Beara Peninsula

I called it 'Returning home in Beara', (above). The original hangs in a private collection in England. It isn't actually Gortahig, just inspired by the area. As many people know I rarely actually paint what is there. The road to the house is sort of as is above, but the house is not from there. There is a group of houses there, and the road runs between them, also there is no pier. The postcard first came out 6 years ago and sold and sold, so I thought it was time to bring it out again and while I was at it I thought a couple of cards of brand new oil paintings might be good

Almost homeAlmost home24x20 inch original oil painting by John Eagle, local fishermen rowing for home as the storm picks up, but they are almost there. Original painting on show at the Sarah Walker Gallery in Castletownbere

'Almost Home' (above) is an imaginary Beara scene showing hardy men rowing a traditional fishing boat. They've been out in the Wild Atlantic fishing all day, they didn't realise the storm would come up so quickly. They are rowing busily for home, and they should be ok if they make between the narrow channel

The PocketThe Pocketoil on canvas

'The Pocket' (above) is based on an area at the back of Glanmore where a waterfall cascades into the valley behind a farm which was once farmed by a sheep dog trainer friend of mine. I have bathed many times in this waterfall, and get a lot of inspiration for my paintings from this area

The postcards are available from my website www.JohnEaglePhoto.com
