Blue Eyes the Viking, is part of my 'Blue Eyes' series, which came about when an old friend doubted the colour of my eyes, which are obviously blue!

I lived in Scandinavia for over a year, up in the Arctic Circle. It was a magical place full of legends, Northern Lights and ghosts of times gone by. When visiting the Islands of Lofoten, you could feel their Viking history and how the memories of this remain in the land and the people. Despite being of Irish, British and Western European origin, I was often mistaken for being Scandinavian because of blonde hair and high forehead. I loved this and particularly liked being spoken to in Norwegian on the flight home, when obviously British people were spoken to in English.

I studied art during my time in Scandinavia and the culture was far more open to creativity and unique ideas than the culture I had come from. I was never the same after this time of freedom.

Blue Eyes the Viking is a version of days gone by and memories that walk with me.

The painting is sold in 9 x 10 inch mount, ready for framing.
