THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE LIFE
Clonmacnoise Painting • County Offaly, Ireland Painting
A massive cloud formation seems to signal the return of an ancient spirit, whose wisdom holds the key to resuscitate and revive those who have felt this life is but a river that has swallowed up their dreams. A strange wind stirred that day. Just beyond the stone cross I saw shadows, but not dark and grim at all. Rather they were beings bright and kind.
Was there one? Or were there two—or even three?
What is your essential story of life?
What is alive in you?
That You Might Have Life is an original Soul of Place painting from the County Offaly 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!
