Award winning artist oil painter, Patrick Michael Karnahan, will have a showing of his landscapes of Ireland.
The collection of work will include some location paintings the artist created while living in Ireland in the 1980s. The show will also feature many current works inspired by Ireland’s rugged coastline. Karnahan will also have several memorabilia of his Sonora Celtic Faire on display to add to the theme. Karnahan created the very first Celtic Faire, of the modern age, over 28 years ago.
In 1986 the artist was asked to teach a class on landscape painting in the town of Westport, Ireland. When the weather cooperated, Karnahan would take a loyal group of local seniors into the rugged mountains of Galway. “It was always a challenge to start a canvas on a clear day, and then an hour later the rain was sideways”- Karnahan. Many of the paintings the artist created in Ireland were sold in Westport. “In the evenings I would take the paintings down to the local pub and sell them to American tourists, for they thought I was a local”- Karnahan. The artist claims that his style of plein-air techniques that were used in Ireland was based on working fast because of the changing color & light every minute.
The artist started oil painting at the age of eight years old, claiming to have painted his first plein-air painting, of his father’s barn, at age twelve. Throughout his life Karnahan has established himself as the leading artist in the subject of American Railroads, Ireland, and Wild land Firefighting.
To date the artist has painted close to 600 railroad portraits. His work has been exhibited many times at the California State Railroad Museum. In 2005 the artist’s original art was exhibited at the Smithsonian Museum Folklife Festival in Washington D.C., and Kennedy Center. Karnahan has done many commissioned works for calendars, magazines, book covers, and fine art posters.
