This is the original oil on canvas painted as part of the limited edition print and silk range.
As a young boy Stephen remembers visiting Portballintrae on family holidays and noticed the sense of beauty and wonderment from the coastline looking out over the bay. The oil painting which was produced on canvas to produce the pocket square was one of a number of North Coast scenes commissioned by a number of residents in the Portballintrae area.
Portballintrae (from Irish: Port Bhaile an Tra, meaning “port of the beach settlement”) is a small seaside village in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It is four miles east of Portrush and two miles west of the Giant’s Causeway. It was originally a fishing village; a cluster of whitewashed cottages nestled around the horse shoe-shaped Ballintrae Bay.
