Keltic Kismet – Celtic Cross Art

My house is currently full of Celtic Crosses!

If they possess any supernatural powers to repel evil spirits then I am so well protected that I’m practically bulletproof. Hmmm, I’ve so far managed to avoid the flu and winter plagues that have decimated my acquaintance over the Winter so maybe these Celtic Crosses are having an effect.

Anyway, these magnificent artworks are currently propping up the walls everywhere in my house as my brother (who is also my housemate for this year) is going through his Celtic Period. They’re absolutely gorgeous (although nineteen is probably a bit more gorgeous than my small house can accommodate). And each is a very individual acrylic-on-canvas artwork. They are rich in texture and colour; taking a contemporary approach to a traditional motif.

I’ve attached a few examples for your viewing pleasure. I’ve posted them as thumbnails to fit a few on the page. Just click on the thumbnail to get a larger image.

Martin is planning to hold an exhibition in the Spring (southern hemisphere Spring, that is). Although he’s not averse to selling some of the pieces before that. And, as his prices are amazingly reasonable, I have no doubt that he will.

Meanwhile, I’m feeling invincible!

    They are gorgeous and I am sure he will not have a problem selling them.

    I love the Celtic crosses, your brother is very talented! Perhaps I need a few of them in my house right now, do you think they would help me cope with tradesmen??

    hello, the work is good. however, a traditional celtic cross has equal arms=equidistant? is that the word and is surrounded by a circle. a christian cross, the instrument of torture and the equivalent of lethal injection has the extended lower “arm”…..it would be wonderful to see the four directions “cross” surrounded by the circle of eternity…..thanks, oonagh+
