Summer of Stones

This June, I featured ancient stone monuments over at Emerald Post. These ancient stones are scattered all across the Celtic Isles, some are known worldwide, like Stonehenge, some just stand humbly among sheep in a farmer's field. Any drive across the landscape and you will see ancient stones of one sort or another. My watercolor painting below journeys through the landscape stopping at different types of monuments from different eras: Dolmen, Stone Circles, Standing Stones, Clochan/Beehive Huts, Cashels & High Crosses. And the other contents of June's Emerald Post explore these monuments even further. Below is a gathering of June's contents (still available over HERE) and an offering of stones from across these isles.
