Artist Stephen Flynn, Cork

Being retired I no longer need chase the dollar, seek recognition, or prove myself. At last I can do what I love and love doing it. All my life I have worked with people, in groups, and one to one. To know a person in depth also requires insight into the humanity of their Soul. So I strive to capture their story written on their face. Call it culture, interaction or whatever! One day I may be privileged to reveal that inner wonderment, that having once seen is never forgotten. So, with this simple test. The above pastel work forms part of an ongoing yearning to capture a little of the beauty of people. The head turner, the unusual, the reminder of interaction between humans never fails to fascinate me.

I like to focus on the common folk, ordinary people who represent facets of us all. I seek that look, that twist of face, that smile which lingers on in the minds eye.
