Original Oil on canvas, size 20 x 24 inches plus frame.

Frame included in purchase price.


The Cailleach, also known as Beara in Ireland, and Beira here in Scotland, is a very ancient creator deity and crone goddess predating Celtic mythology. She created the mountains and lochs, and ruled the winter - but was also a protector of animal life too. She is often depicted with a blue face, due to the cold I imagine - so I used quite a bit in the painting... I have probably made her look more benign than some would have her, but that's my take on the subject.

As an illustrator I believe fully researching your subject is essential; it provides a fascinating learning curve that enriches your practise and your mind.
