Hello Everybody - Just signed up after being a long time lurker here and I'm looking forward to posting a bit from now on.

I'm researching Ross MacDonald Ross and his art for my own site "Art For Art's Sake" and I wonder if anybody here can identify this picture of his that I have recently come across. It is described as a West of Ireland landscape but I wonder is it in the Mournes? Thanks in advance for any information.

Apparently it is entitled Rocky Mountain, The Mournes (see http://www.arcadja.com/auctions/en/ross_macdonald_r_/artist/351435/ )

Thanks - and God bless your eyesight! I have that "Rocky Mountain, The Mournes" saved in my files and even checked it against the latest pic but the difference in colour threw me. I have the two of them side by side below and it's clearly the same location but painted from a slightly different angle. Apparently the artist regularly painted the same location over and again e.g. Narrow Water Castle. Anyway, thanks again as you have saved me a lot of searching.

Looks like the path from Leitrim Lodge up to Pierce's Castle, so Rocky Mountain would be the one on the left.

I recall in the late1950,s and early 60's Macdonald Ross used to display his paintings in an outside gallery in HILLSBOROUGH. It was situated approx 75 yards from the Courthouse on the right hand side of the road as you approached from Dromore.

Another nice watercolour by the artist which sold at auction this month - sadly not to me. :-(


Titled "The Fairy Glen, Rostrevor" which may mean something to some of your readers.

The Fairy Glen is the upper stretch of the river which runs through Rostrevor. If you look at the thread at http://www.oldwarrenpointforum.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=10432&hilit=fairy+glen this "may" be a match to the actual location - the photo labelled "In the Fairy Glen" - however this is taken from a different angle - the waterfall in the top left of the painting (with the rock in the middle of the stream at the top) may be a match for that to the bottom right of the photo.

Regards
Jim
