"Familiar Forces (Cill Rialaig)" by Lynda Cookson

I have spent three residencies at Cill Rialaig, a restored famine village in Co Kerry, Ireland, during the last few years. The village teeters on the edge of a cliff overlooking Ballinskelligs Bay. My residencies all took place during January ... a very wild, windy, rainy, sometimes snowy, and of course cold, time of year.

For those of you who can feel or appreciate the spirit world, with a children's graveyard less than a kilometre from the stone-house famine village, and with the weather so wild, you can imagine how I felt those presences!

I produced a collection of acrylic paintings in that time, all very loosely painted, with flicks of the paint brush ... and most of them came out very representative of past lives indeed. This is one of them.
