Brigid -Goddess of Fire- acrylic mixed media on canvas by 


Brigid is one of my favorite Celtic Goddesses. She is the goddess of the home and hearth, inspiration, poetry, smithcraft, and healing. As a solar deity her attributes are light, inspiration and all skills associated with fire. Although She might not be identified with the physical Sun, She is certainly the benefactress of inner healing and vital energy.

In my depiction of Brigid, the Gaelic above her head translates as “Have a fire of your own”. Brigid serves as a reminder to keep your own inner fire alive and thriving!

Here is a photo of me with the original. I sold her at this showing. I kind of miss her sometimes….

    The Tuatha de Danann pantheon is my favorite. I love Brighid, and you can tell you put a lot of love into painting this!

  • Tammy- We have a lot in common girl! Faerie realm-Tuatha de Dannen, I know very well. Have you ever been to Ireland? If you haven’t I think you would love it. I have much more to write and ask about-but that will come. For now I will say that I love your art and your writings on your site! So nice to have connected here. Oh, and the faerie calendar you put together is to die for! : )

    Very beautiful work! I really like how you weaved her hair as you did her necklace. There are wonderful symbols in your painting, great work! And thanks for your explanations, Blessed Be :)

  • thanks so much ! and yes-there is symbolism in there for Brigid. One fun bit of trivia is that the wheat making up her crown I got from a crop circle in England!

    She is my favorite too – I did a drawing of her using a reference photo of my Irish grandmother as a young woman. It’s way back in my pages. This is great! I love your use of symbolism.

    she is lovely. I saw her in the mist of your others and love her almost as much as I love your mandolin player.

  • thank you so much! I sold the original and to be truthful-I miss her! She was a warm presence to have around! Interesting that you like the mandolin player too because I thin they have the same sensitivity.
    happy New Year to you!
