Happy St. Patrick's Day

This is an example of my Celtic Art. I began creating this type of art right after college. I sat down on my drafting table one day, and this is the type of art that emerged. (I have no formal painting background. My training is through practice and trying new things from the art store.) I love creating art with the interlacing knotwork. Each piece is done free-hand, without rulers, compasses or other tools. Over the years I have experimented with other painting techniques and subjects, but I always come back to my Irish roots. Happy St. Patrick's Day! It is a very special holiday- right up there with Christmas in our family. Please visit http://www.ckgalleria.com/ for more examples of my Celtic Art.

I am lucky enough to have a print of this piece in my living room. Colleayn's knot work mixed with passionate brush strokes make this piece come alive. On cold winter nights, it reminds me that spring and summer are just around the corner. Colleayn's Irish inspired pieces are absolutely gorgeous!
