Cailleach. Painting on cow skull. 2017.


I found a near-bare cow skull in a bog near here around 3 years ago. Since then it has bleached out nicely in the garden. A shout out from the Edinburgh Beltane crew inspired this take on the Cailleach, to perhaps become part of a poster advertising their Samhuinn Fire Festival.

‘Kleshas’. Now finished???


Or alternatively titled ‘Why won’t my thoughts stay still like Buddha’s?’!
I was not completely happy with this so have spent a bit longer on it. It has got darker, but that is part of its meaning to me.
