People who know me well, know that I'm absolutely in love with the country of Ireland. I swear, I must've been Irish in a past life or something! I mean, it's not like I share their heritage or anything? Trust me... I've gone back as far as I possibly can in my research, and I'm proud to say that I'm 200% French-Canadian! :D
My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary 2 years ago. We wanted to go on special trip somewhere - not on some cruise (been there, done that!), a warm beach (although I'm sure my husband would've been all over that!), or even camping (which we do love, but come 'on... this was a huge milestone anniversary!). After not much discussion, we decided on Ireland. It seemed like an obvious choice.
Well, let me tell you... it was the best vacation ever! Ok, granted we haven't traveled much, like many of the people we know. But still! It's just such a gorgeous landscape, you can't help but just be in complete awe all the time... that, and the Guinness is just to die for!!!
So while visiting one of the many castles, I came across this great old cemetery. It was kind of perched on a slight hilltop, so I crouched down and snapped some pictures. Two years later, I decided to immortalize (no pun intended) it in a painting. It's currently one of my favorites hung on my walls :)
