And Now For Something Different
Brigid's Fire 16" X 20" acrylic and collage on plexiglass
For the last month I've been playing around reverse painting on plexiglass, and I completed this little wild thing just in time for Imbolc over at Inspiration Avenue. According to the ancient Celtic calendar "Imbolc is a celebration of the first signs of spring: the melting of January snows, the first blooms, the heaviness of animals expecting birth. It is a time of awakening, of new life, of new potential. A rebirth of light." It's also the time of Brigid's Feast Day; Brigid or Brighid is a triple goddess: fertility, poetry, and earthly fire, as well as one of the three patron saints of Ireland. You can read more about her here.
