Sweetheart Abbey

18x18" - Oil on canvas.
This abbey was built by Lady Devorgilla of Galloway for her husband John Balliol. When he died she carried his heart about with her in a silver casket. When she died she was buried with his heart on her chest. This is why it is called Sweetheart Abbey.
I painted this several years ago.
