THIS SINGLE LIFE
Carrowkeel Painting • County Sligo, Ireland Painting
At the top of the winding trail, one arrives at an overlook. Gazing out over Lough Key and Lough Arrow in the direction of Knocknarae, Ben Bulben and Sligo Bay, I was struck by how the landscape came to life with epic stories.
Twisted by time, the lone tree at the top of the slope appeared both strong and fragile. It was to me a symbol of celebrating this single life and the stories we each bring to our singular role in place and time. We live lives fraught with peril, yet life is a journey worth making.
This single life is a gift beyond measure.
What is your essential story of life?
What is alive in you?
This Single Life is an original Soul of Place painting from the County Roscommon, County Sligo 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!
