An Irish Blessing


St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner! I am part Irish so this holiday is special to me.
I wanted to share an Irish Blessing with you:

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.


In celebration of St. Patty's Day I painted a sweet little girl who found a four leaf clover!


This lucky little girl is up for grabs on ebay.

Love being part irish (though youwouldnt be able to tell!) The irish girl is great. As a girl I used to sit in the garden trying to find four leaf clovers. This painting reminds me of that!
