Artwork Description

I donated this painting to a fundraising evening for The Kids Help Phone, a hotline for troubled kids. The design is very traditional, derived from the Lindisfarne Gospels although the coloring and decision to add gold leaf was my own. It features a lovely letter O decorated with birds and siprals.

Did you realize some of the knots in the intrior circl look like dragonflies?

Actually I'm not sure! It's was a silent auction, so I don't know how much it eventually went for. The whole auction al ltogether raised over $100,000 for the Kids Help Phone though, so the night was a big success. Smile

I appreciate your understanding of the feel of celtic (hiberno-saxon) knotwork design. You really grok this style. How much did raise?

Art at its best.
