This is an original painting on panel completed in 2003 from my own design. This large wall piece measures 27.5" high by 22" wide and is 3/4" deep. Completely created and painted by hand using acrylic paints on a shaped and gessoed wooden panel, this is a unique and truly one-of-a-kind-piece or art.

The inspiration for this piece is from the illuminated manuscript style of early Medieval Ireland, such as the Book of Kells, and the great Insular manuscript, the Lindisfarne Gospels. I created the design of this piece based on how I felt the Celtic traditions would represent an other-world being like an angel. The seraphim is described in Medieval texts as being a fiery being, "carriers of warmth", and traditionally is represented with wings of flame. My Celtic version uses rich warm colors, but approaches the theme with an emphasis on the natural world. In Celtic myth the otherworld is closer to hand and more tangible, and my design reflects that in representing the wings of a hawk or falcon - a mythical being with a close connection to the beauty and function of nature.

In the close-up photos you can see the detail of the painting and how the surface of the panel catches the light and gives this wall hanging texture. I created this piece with a great deal of care and attention to detail and am looking forward to finding just the person it was created for. - Lisa Laughy
