SILENCE IS GOLDEN — A Soul Story from Dawn
Eyes aflame, a big-horned sheep stare’s with an intensity, his entire being lit up with a startling truth. In the background, a form whose shape mirrors the body of water on the right walks away from the purple round tower. 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 are 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? Portraying a mix of gentleness and strength, the colorful big-horned sheep looks on with a silence that is golden.
In the heart of the Emerald Isle I was met with mystery and miracle. The soul of Ireland spoke to my soul, and I was forever changed. Connect to your essential story of life through inspiring Irish landscapes in the Soul of Ireland Collection.
