County Roscommon, Ireland Painting
A fiery sky had the trees alive with vibrant reds and the sun was so low in the sky that the Irish wood below had been enveloped by an inky black.
All along a large fallen branch that stood in my path, a mossy vine shimmered like teal-tinged wings, illuminated by the sun behind me. The exposed portion of the branch, glowing green, leaned at a steep angle into the horizon line.
She was undaunted, leaning into her life as if she was unafraid meet the sun face to face and dance on the edge of the last light.
What is your essential story of life?
What is alive in you?
Fire Dancer is an original Soul of Place painting from the County Roscommon and Soul of Ireland collection 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.
