Rainbow Post - The Feeling of Green

I made this little painting for Billy after Annie's third birthday. Bill wanted to take us to Ireland to celebrate Annie's turning three. He also wanted to take LaLa Pat. So we all went. It was magical. He carried Annie down lanes, onto stormy beaches, through muddy fields, into 14th century castles all the way from Dingle to Sligo. He and Pat hiked out to see views, ancient cemetaries, and primitive structures. We rented a stone house where he cooked us a lamb dinner with mint salsa that we still talk about. It was all so perfect! So this post is not about the color green, but the feeling of hope and gratitude and an eternal feeling of newness that Bill brings to my life.
Thank you Billy!

I like how you describe your trip succinctly, but most of all, I enjoy the way you cherish your darlings through your art.

In many ways it was like going home and not sure that you want to be there. I So enjoyed hiking with Bill, actually the highlight of the trip was see for myself the ancient homes and forts. To feel the ghosts that inhabit and protect. It was magical in many ways. Even losing my bearings in Galway.
