ALIVE INSIDE THIS MOUNTAIN
Knocknarae Painting • County Sligo, Ireland Painting
In the blink of an eye, she is changed, awake and alive inside the mountain. She sees beyond the darkness where she has slept for centuries, the skies exploding with her rainbow dreams.
This painting was inspired by my experiences on many hikes to the top of Knocknarae in County Sligo. Locals sometimes refer to Knocknarae as “the magic mountain,” and Queen Maeve is supposedly buried here in a 40-foot cairn.
What is your essential story of life?
What is alive in you?
Alive Inside This Mountain is an original Soul of Place painting from the County Sligo and Soul of Ireland collections by Virginia artist Dawn Richerson, who found joy and wonder in the heart of the Emerald Isle where she lived for three years. In Ireland I was met with mystery and miracle. The soul of Ireland spoke to my soul, and I was forever changed.
I'll meet you on the way!
