ABOUT THE ART
Here's a piece I did 2+ years ago. I've finally managed to straighten the paper out and get a good scan - so here it is - the beginning of my Celtic pattern/mythology obsession.
"Celtic tradition lists the oldest animal as the Hawk of Achill. As with many other birds, the hawk is a messenger of the various worlds. However, it is noted as being more skillful and stronger than most others of its species. To hear the cry of a hawk during a journey is an indication that it would be wise to be alert to upcoming situations that require boldness and decisiveness in order to keep from being thrown off-balance. The hawk was considered a noble bird that brought the sun within his feathers, and enabled recollection and the ability to progress."
