Irish Colleen

Irish Colleen by Jill Smyth

I'm a voracious reader and when I was a little girl I adored learning about Irish myths and legends. The word "colleen" simply means girl in Irish, and I always imagined the protagonists of the old tales with deep red "Irish" hair. This painting was part of a series I did for an exhibition in 2018-19, and then displayed at my stall in St George's Market. All originals have now sold out, but limited edition prints of two originals are now back by popular demand.
