Triquetra Paintings

In honor of St. Patrick's Day...here are some Celtic inspired paintings I did a couple years ago.
They look a lot better in person. They photographed a little funky, due to the metallic paint I used for them.

The triquetra, or trinity knot, is one of my favorite celtic knotwork images. I love its beautiful simplicity, plus the symbolism of the three-in-one Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

"According to legend, St. Patrick used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pre-Christian Irish. " (from Wikipedia)
