Celtic - Standing Stones

Standing Stones is 23" x 18".  This piece started out as a tie-dyed piece of fabric to which I added some acrylic paint.  Commercial fabrics were used for the stones and foreground.  While many people will think of Stonehenge, there are also standing stones in Ireland. The stones in Ireland are generally not in as good a shape as they have fallen over and some are partially buried.  This is how they may have looked once upon a time.

Beautiful background. It really makes me think of the standing stones in Ireland when and if the sun shines. Great job;

Beautiful! Great idea and good job Reminds me of a woman named Clair that stepped in between such stones and stepped back in time 200 years, a book by Diana Gabaldon

Linda.... great piece. Standing stones are such a part of Ireland and Scotland. Love the moon phases integrated.. and the shadow effect.

I thought of the same book that SusanPl mentioned... The sunrise and the phases of the moon give it a very ethereal quality. Nicely done.

A stunning piece Linda. Background and shadows are so well executed and the phases of the moon just tops it off. Wonderful! Sandi Cannarella

Wow, I love your mandala sky! How perfect for the intense rays from the sun. How did you do the phases of the moon...are they discharged or painted or appliqued or...?
Yep, dropped me right back there with Claire and Jamie

Thank you all for your comments. The phases of the moon were painted on.
And, yes, I read that book too!
