"Stormy Road to Newcastle" Northern Ireland Thomas W Schaller - Watercolor 15x22 inches 22 March 2015 On my trip to Northern Ireland last year, I was looking forward to being bowled over by the beauty I'd always imagined I'd see in the legendary Mountains of Mourne ( where the "Mountains Sweep Down to the Sea" as the song goes ). And I was - but more so than I ever could have imagined. And the overpowering beauty, energy, and majesty of the ever-changing sky was a revelation. Never have skies seemed so alive to me - as if they were always trying to talk to me - to tell me something. And every day since - I believe they did. So inspiring and amazing they were. Driving toward Newcastle this day - I had to stop and just try to take it all in. I still am.

Lots of time in Italy this year - never a bad thing! I'm very happy to be exhibiting and presenting at the IWS Exhibition; Fabriano In Acquarello, and The Festival Internazionale in Sperlonga in May. Then in June, teaching in Rome for the Associazione Romana Acquerellisti. A few sample attached. Can't wait!
