Walking the Land

Lately I’ve been lucky enough to spend time walking through the stunning landscapes of Mayo, Donegal and Wicklow, namely climbing Croagh Patrick,  Errigal Mountain and walking through Glenmalure.  They have all been inspiration for my latest painting (which will possibly be called Eriú – goddess of the Land).  The book “Elen of the Ways” by Elen Sentier along with a visit to Uisneach (the sacred centre of Ireland) have also fed my imagination to create this painting.  It’s still a work in progress but hopefully it won’t take too much longer….

Ail na Muireann (The Stone of Divisions) also known as the Catstone at Uisneach. It is said that Eriú was laid to rest beneath this stone.
