Mixed media collage: Brigid’s Fire

Yesterday I have finished a mixed media collage which shows my interpretation of Brigid, goddess of Fire and Inspiration. Here she is faceless and fiery, caring for her eternal flame with nurturing attention, She inspires me to rekindle my own fire and start creating again.... 

Mixed Media Brigid Fire Inspiration

The quote says: "From a small spark comes often a big fire"

    1. Thank you Beth! Yes this fiery aspect of her is more like The Queen of Wands than like the Spring maiden with her little lamb :

  2. Simply stunning Ellen! And I really like the quote you put with the collage - very appropriate and true. :) As Alicia Keys sings, "This girl is on fire..."

    1. Thanks Sharyn and no, it isn´t. It is a combination of different techniques like painting (acrylics and watercolor), collage, colored pencils, pens etc
