colourful miniature paintings to brighten up your home or someones life. Gift ideas from €49 to €200 by Caroline Cunningham Irish Artist.
When my husband and I bought our new home last year we were very excited indeed. It was all we ever wished for in a home for our little family. We wanted it to be filled with positivity, nice vibes and free flowing energy. Since we both believe in the power of positivity and the importance of balance, it was easy for us to work together to create our happy bubble using some basic elements of feng shui.
I couldn’t wait to move in and start organising everything, but I was extra excited about my Seomra Sona (Happy Room). It was my place to relax, practice yoga, play music and most of all, my quiet place to write without distraction, apart from the beautiful view of the River Moy and Mount Nephin.
"As Seomra Sona was to be my haven, I wanted to buy something really special for it. I knew straight away what that something special was going to be!"Gloria Mc Breen, We are Holistic
I had been admiring Caroline Cunningham’s art for a while. I fell in love with her collection ‘The Scared Life of Trees’. The trees come to life in Caroline’s paintings, the warm vibrant colours are spectacular. I wanted my husband to help me choose one so we visited her website to browse through her wonderful artwork, hoping we would both agree on the same piece.
With intentions of buying from The Sacred Lives of Trees, we got completely side tracked and ended up buying Ganga Dreaming. We were both equally drawn to it and although I felt that I had betrayed the trees, my heart was with the boat, as was Stephen’s. We both love boats of all shapes and sizes.
"In feng shui, a sailing boat encourages productivity, bringing success and prosperity with the wind and waters."Gloria Mc Breen, We are Holistic
When I look at a boat I see calm peaceful waters that can take me away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Ganga Dreaming has that calming and peaceful effect. It’s also mysterious and a little bit quaint. The bare mast caught my eye before the oars did, which is why I like to think it’s a sailboat rather than a rowing boat.
In feng shui, a sailing boat encourages productivity, bringing success and prosperity with the wind and waters. Even more prosperous is a ship filled with gold. The Ganga Dreaming boat may not be filled with gold coins, but it looks like a floating treasure chest with its beautiful golden yellow canopy. It is also believed that the more you feel connected to your boat the more it will work for you.
In Feng Shui the placement of the boat is very important. The front of it needs to be pointing towards the inner part of the room so that it takes abundance into your life rather than take it away. It is also good to remember that abundance and prosperity don’t always come in the form of money. A life can be rich in so many other things that make for a happy peaceful home.
It gave me great pleasure to deal with Caroline Cunningham. She is a genuine soul and very professional in what she does. Her passion for wellness and nature, especially for trees, shines through her work. She’s a wonderful artist who deserves recognition and success.
Thank you to Gloria Mc Breen for taking the time to provide this wonderful tribute to my work and for honouring Ganga Dreaming with a pride of place in her Seomra Sona (Happy Room).

Through my art and writing I share stories and inspiration for transformation, healing and dreams turning to reality. When you visit my gallery you glimpse my journey, my authentic path. It took a ‘Break True’ moment to point me towards developing my artistic talents. It’s never too late to make a new start. I’ve achieved a lot in a relatively short time. My work has been presented in New York as part of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, has been displayed on county Post Office and has been show-cased on National TV. Read more about my art journey here.
