Easkey is a miniature acrylic painting of its tower adjacent to Easkey Harbour, which is used by local fishermen on the Wild Atlantic Way.
Easkey Castle, also known as O’Dowd’s Castle or Roslee Castle was built in 1207 for Oliver McDonnell. He came to Sligo to marry an O’Dowd Widow- One of Sligo’s primary Chieftain families of the time.
Because this is all that remains of this once prominent stronghold, it has become a famous local attraction for visitor and tourists alike. It can be climbed with the reward of surrounding stunning coastal views on a clear day.
The structure and the setting is what inspired me to paint this painting. It’s steeped in so much history and has been left to retain itself all through the centuries. For those that have fond memories of such a beautiful wild place and typical of northwest Ireland, this is so the perfect gift.
Easkey was created from Acrylic on primed canvas. My painting is signed and titled underneath and inserted into a 4 x 4 inch mount. I’ve placed it into a 9 x 9 inch off white wooden box-frame with a hanging hook on the back. The inside of the frame includes a 30mm foam-board spacer. This creates a recess between the glass and the backing board of the frame and gives perspective to my painting. Because we at the Open Door are trying to be sustainable in today’s World, the white core mount and the backing board are both acid-free. This also means that it shouldn’t fade over time.
