Ring of Kerry Ireland Stream 30×40x1.25 in. Original Oil on stretched canvas by Hall Groat II. This original oil on canvas painting is a luminous summer scene of a stream located in the heart of Ring of Kerry Ireland. It’s painted in a realist style in brown, white, green, yellow, Indian Red, blue, gold, cream, and gray tones. The piece was inspired by a trip my wife, Francine and I took took to Ireland. During our several week tour of Ireland I was completely captivated by the innate beauty of the Ring of Kerry landscape.
