Danu of the Celts

by Dean Morrissey

She stands regally, alone in the woods, clad in both chain-mail armor and red robes embellished with gold. The dual nature of her character is evident; she is both sovereign and goddess, mother and warrior, priestess and protectress. She is Danu, the Celtic mother goddess of the Tuatha Dé Danann, a tribe of gods and demi-gods in pre-Christian Ireland. With Danu of the Celts, artist Dean Morrissey continues his successful series of Celtic figures and subjects, which has previously included The Celtic King, Anna of the Celts, The Voyage of the Fianna and The Piper of Tir n’ Og. Dean Morrissey has captured the fierce independent spirit of the Irish people in Danu of the Celts, making it a beautiful gift for anyone with an interest in Irish or Celtic mythology.

A Big Fish Story

by John Weiss

A recurring theme in his paintings, says artist John Weiss, is that “strength, comfort and encouragement are always within reach.” Nowhere is this more evident than in his newest painting, A Big Fish Story.

Although the woods are dark and the night is cold, the figures in A Big Fish Story are bathed in light and warmth. Seated before a blazing fire, a fisherman recounts tales of his fishing prowess to an awed boy and his captivated beagle. The heat of the fire and the excitement of his grandfather’s adventure have brought a flush to the boy’s cheeks as he watches the legendary fish grow in size. Their companionship and love create a warmth that floods beyond the walls of the shelter, casting a golden glow on the snowy ground
and surrounding woods. The light at the heart of A Big Fish Story draws the viewer in, and we find ourselves leaning closer to hear just how big that fish really was.
