Belfast Beauty

About the print

A unique look at Goliath of Harland and Wolff with Cavehill and the striking sunset behind.

Belfast Beauty was made using acrylic, mixed from the primary colors red, yellow, and blue. Then finished with willow charcoal to add depth and vibrancy. The yellow of the crane’s ties so wonderfully with the skyline behind and the fluorescent-lit up industrial area.

The original painting was donated to The Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul (SVP) by Aly to help raise funds and awareness of their annual Family Appeal Stuff A Bus campaign which provides children living in poverty in Northern Ireland with a gift to open on Christmas Day.

Raising more than £2,100 from 155 supporters, a very lucky donator was drawn as the recipient of ‘Belfast Beauty’.

On accepting her painting from Aly, Laura said: “I am absolutely delighted to win this stunning artwork from the very talented Aly Harte in a meaningful competition for The Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul. I have a familial connection with The Salvation Army as my Great Aunt and Uncle, Josephine and Philip Kerr, were both Salvationists.

They left Northern Ireland in 1965 for Perth with their young family where some of their activities were providing a hostel for young single Aboriginal mothers, running youth groups, working in homeless hostels and setting up soup kitchens for firefighters on the front line.”

Handing over ‘Belfast Beauty’, Aly said: “As a mother of three boys I cannot imagine the heartache of not being able to provide for them and I felt that by donating ‘Belfast Beauty’ to the Christmas Family Appeal Stuff A Bus campaign I was helping in my own unique way. I would like to congratulate Laura on receiving the painting and I hope that it brings her joy for many years to come.”

 

About Aly

Aly is a Northern Irish-based Artist, Writer, and Educator.  She has several accolades to her name, most recently:
> Nominated 40 under 40

Aly works from a studio near Belfast which is conducive to her family life with her husband and their three young boys.
She is passionate about placing importance on everyday moments, objects and places in her oil paintings and pastel work.
Her practice is influenced heavily by her own childhood memories of growing up in a smallholding in the Irish countryside.
Themes of the familiar and familial can be traced back as far as her degree show in 2003 when her installation “Daddy’s bread” used 795 empty bread bags (of her father’s favourite loaf) to represent each week from when her Father passed until the opening of her final exhibition.
Aly was awarded a first-class honours degree and a distinction in her Masters in Fine Art which she completed following her degree.

Specializing in Acrylic, oil and Mixed Media Aly has a love for creating stunning vibrant paintings.  Along with a love of monochrome.

Here is a place where you can find recipes, information on physical wellbeing, travel and home ideas as well as life ramblings.

 

I use art in all it’s mediums to express my love for the “everyday”. Coffee cups, familiar landmarks, colour associations. All of these, I believe contribute to what is known as our “everyday”. Not only do I love drawing them, I think they are worth placing importance on.

 

This blog is an extension of my creativity.

 

I convey a realistic (the good, the bad, the funny, the sad) view into the life of a family woman, a home maker and a business woman on a journey of physical and mental wellness.
