“You are the poem I dreamed of writing, the masterpiece I longed to paint. You are the shining star I reached for in my ever hopeful quest for life fulfilled. You are my child. Now, with all things I am blessed.”... Forget about the messes, or the trials that come with parenting! Let’s admit how we truly feel. Our children are indeed a blessing, and we have fulfillment with them. This specially designed Irish framed print expresses what we sincerely feel about our shining stars. The artist is Kevin Dillon and each original piece, before copied, is constructed when he crushes semi-precious stones – lapis lazuli, cinnabar, azurite and others, to make his own paints. Using a dip pen or goose quill, he meticulously applies the letters and beautiful designs to the calf skin. One at a time, the colors are applied. And the final illumination is achieved using 24K gold leaf. The artist's seal is imprinted in molten wax at the bottom of each copy, making every print a unique piece of art from the Celtic monastic tradition. All works are based on The Book of Kells and constructed in that same tradition.
