Revisiting this impressive Glendalough Monastic Site in 2014 resulted in making this painting – The Garden.
Glendalough refers to a beautiful valley in the Irish Wicklow Mountains, about 40 kilometers south from Dublin.
This is a superb walking area. In the valley a monastery was founded in the 6th century by St. Kevin who lived as a hermit.
The ruins are among the oldest Christian relics in Europe.
The name Glendalough comes from the Irish: Gleann Dá Locha – Valley of the two lakes.
