SILENCE IS GOLDEN {SHEEPISH}

Eyes aflame, a lone sheep, wild and wooly, stares her down with fierce intensity, his entire being lit with a startling truth. Behind him, the turquoise shape of water mirrors the forms that once rested in the shadow of this round tower, purpling with a royal remembrance. 

This painting is loosely inspired by an experience at Clonmacnoise, the early Christian monastery situated on the shores of the River Shannon in County Offaly, Ireland. In nearby cemetery ruins, the high kings of Tara and Connacht lie sleeping. The memory of Saint Ciarin fills the land and the sound of ringing bells and seabirds echo. 

Could it be this sheep saw it too—the “ship in the sky” recorded in the Annals of Ulster as having occurred in 749? With a mix of gentleness and strength, the colorful big-horned sheep looks on with a silence that is golden. She will hold her secrets and allow you to decide what you see held in eternity and reflected in her eyes.
