Bagpipe Chanter

Bagpipe Chanter

After my Mother's church service, we opened the church doors and there was a lone bagpiper playing Danny Boy. The bagpiper was at the grave site when we arrived. And he played until the end - until our limousine drove down the gravel drive and he could see us no longer.

I've always loved the bagpipes. My studio is in Bethlehem, Pa - the home of the largest Celtic Festival in the United States. Each September we host 'Celtic Classic' ... each year we commence with the celtic parade including bagpiping bands, Scottish dancers, athletes, border collies ... and me, the 'banner chick' for the Bethlehem Bagpiping Band. It's wonderful to see the large hulking men in their kilts vying for a world record. It's great to sit on the bleachers with an English Ale in tow. It's wonderful to don the plaid for the first weekend of 'sweater weather'.

If you would like to purchase this 6" x 6" oil painting on stretched canvas, please email me. This painting is priced at $100.00 plus s/h.

Thank You!
