Bonny Portmore - Ornamental Tree is an original miniature painting, also called "Plant More Trees #2."
The tiny artwork can make a wonderful gift for any tree lover.
"Bonny Portmore" is a folk song from Ireland - an elegy for perished forests and trees.
"O bonny Portmore,
You shine where you stand,
And the more I think on you,
The more I think long...
...All the birds in the forest
They bitterly weep,
Saying, 'Where shall we shelter,
Or where shall we sleep?"
There is also a beautiful piece by Loreena McKennitt called "Bonny Portmore", which is based on this traditional song. By the way, Rhia loves Loreena McKennitt's blissful and outstanding music.
Rhia has painted on a 7 x 10 cm illustration board and fixed the miniature painting on top of a mounting board. It makes now the size 18 x 13 cm, and it will fit in standard frames.
