Stellar by Mark McCarthy


Oil on linen

‘Stellar’ is one of many explored themes in my series of work 'High Moon'. Each painting is recognised as a landscape – a mountain, a shoreline, a weather pattern or horizon, but each has been created instinctively to create a sense of wonder and fiction, with the purpose of finding a personal connection that lies within all of us.
