Friday Faves: Different Kind of Hanging O’ The Greens

16 Mar

Sometime in my late 20s I went through a slight obsession with the Irish part of my heritage & Irish culture in general.  I think it stemmed mainly from too many Maeve Binchy books and multiple PBS viewings of Riverdance.  Add to that the fact that my husband thinks Guinness is the greatest thing since, well, Guinness, and it isn’t any surprise that we love St. Patrick’s Day.  So to get you in the mood for a little Erin Go Bragh, how about some artwork to remind us of the Emerald Isle?

      Her work really has a tremendous depth to it, doesn’t it?

        yes, “depth”, good adjective for it. probably from the significant swaths of darkness compared to the lighter foliage-like shading. it has a great feel.
