Artist's description:

Large pastel drawing of Aurora Goddess of Dawn; her hand touches the coloured display in the heavens. Behind her is a dark landscape with a scene of mountains and water. I was inspired to draw this image because my mother who lives in the Northern Ireland told me about going to see the Aurora Borealis in County Donegal. I am also aware that the woman looks like my daughter who at the time had not long left home for University (she has strong Celtic looks).

The pastels used are quality Rembrandt and Sennelier chalk pastels which have been fixed with with a light coating of Winsor & Newton Artist's Fixative spray. The paper is Somerset 300gsm textured printmaking paper with a tooth ideal for pastels.

Available in the mount board shown but please note that this board has been in place around the drawing since it was exhibited in Ireland in 2006 so I would suggest it be replaced at time of framing. It has been stored in my plan-chest since then.

Packaged carefully wrapped in acid-free tissue sandwiched in lightweight foam-core sheets and sent by reliable courier.
