A watercolour on heavy, textured paper of Diarmid's Pillar, Glen Lonan, Argyll, in the west of Scotland.
Diarmid's Pillar traditionally marks the spot where Diarmuid Ua Duibhne or Diarmid O' Dyna, one of the followers of Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn McCool), was killed by a boar. Nearby is Torinturk or Torr an Turc, the hill of the boar.
I painted this picture from a solarised photograph of the standing stone taken when the snow was lying around it. It seemed to show the power flowing from the ancient stone.
The image measures 13.5 x 10 inches and there is an area of paper all around for matting.
