Glencar Waterfall Painting • County Leitrim, Ireland Painting
Inspired by many visits to the mystical Glencar Waterfall in County Leitrim, Ireland, this painting is one of emergence and surrender. Figures come forth from a wall of rock alongside plants that grew in the cold dark of deep crevices and pushed through worn and splintered wood to make their way to light.
Through the spraying waters, animals and people emerge playfully as they speak with sacred silence and solemnity of surrender and the grace of the otherworld. Splashes of rainbow color sparkle, then fade, in the rushing torrent against a teal green palette.
What is your essential story of life?
What is alive in you?
Spirits Surrendered 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.
