Artist of the Day- Donald Teskey (click on image to view more)

 Donald Teskey was born in Co. Limerick and graduated from Limerick College of Art and Design with a Diploma in Fine Art in 1978. He came to prominence as an artist through his skill as a draughtsman during the 1980s, with several significant solo exhibitions. This was pretty much it about this artist. I like his scratchy marks… the ones in the trees especially…how they look so dry and harsh. His occasional use of lighting on the side of a building is quite breathtaking. He’s a landscape painter who rarely uses green.
