Dartry Mountains • County Sligo Ireland Painting
As I stood gazing onto the Dartry mountains, the clouds stretched into slender, sloping shapes above, as if a great being was gliding overhead. The mountain itself seemed to live and breathe as the wind passed through the gold-speckled leaves on a nearby tree.
The scene in County Sligo, Ireland, was a convergence of timelines, an opening to something magical and mysterious. I imagined sleeping dragons alive inside the mighty mountains and saw the new leaves on the tree rustle with delight and affirmation.
What is your essential story of life?
What is alive in you?
Skydance is an original Soul of Place painting from the County Leitrim 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!
