Bridget got her name by an artist friend of mine, Peggy (check out her amazing creativity on her blog TheHouseofKent.blogspot.com). When I told Peggy I loved this painting of mine so much that I wanted to name her - Peggy wrote: Bridget, inspired by Saint Briget of Kildare, a patron saint of Ireland. She shares her name with an important Celtic goddess, and there are many legends and folk customs associated with her. She was a goddess poets adored and associated with Spring. Peggy also said, "She just looked Irish to me, I think with the red hair."
Thank you Peggy for giving my art lady her name! Bridget - I love it!
