County Donegal, Ireland Painting
In the land there is the shadow of an ancient trembling, the remembrance of that loss. And, too, there is the story of all the love that rushes in. The shipwreck in the Rosses region of County Donegal was an invitation to remember all that had been lost, to include the stories that slip from us as time passes.
From generation to generation, we forget that those who came before faced so many storms—and some did not survive. Those who did were forever changed in the same way our own hearts can change when we pause to honor the stories of the souls who have lived and loved and lost in the lands we now traverse.
What is your essential story of life?
What is alive in you?
Donegal Shipwreck is an original Soul of Place painting from the County Donegal 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 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.
