Story Behind the Painting

The Temple Bar neighborhood is a busy hot spot in Dublin featuring lots of fun cafes and pubs. Compared to many other metropolitan cities, I thought the vehicles themselves and street traffic buzz were colorful and interesting. Like many European cities, I also appreciated the contrast of historic charming storefronts along side modern structures. Although a grey Spring day, Dublin has so much color and and interesting things to see everywhere you turn - so I wanted this piece to celebrate the little details. The original painting took months to complete as per my usual technique was entirely hand-drawn.
