JohnOGradyArt-The Fairy Rath V

20″ x 20″ x 1.75″, oil on deep edged canvas, ready to hang.


The ancient raised mound of a Fairy Rath sits in the landscape looking like it has always been there.

Trees and bushes are left to grow, unperturbed by the hand of man.

All is quiet.

The land rolls off into the distance as far as the grey-blue cast of the distant hills.

As we raise our eyes to the heavens, we notice the rolling and swirling of a large cumulus cloud climbing higher and higher into the blue-black sky.

Lit in white, gold, rose and violet, it seems to be ‘raging at the dying of the light’.

Soon it too will be shrouded in darkness.

I’d love to read your comments.
