St. Patrick’s Day 2011

Feb 27

Like Kinkade, my family’s roots are in Ireland.  I have not yet had the pleasure of visiting my home land but I would like to believe it is just as Kinkade portrayed it in “Emerald Valley.”

As hard as life must have been then, the simplicity and the beauty are what I see in this piece.  In the foreground there is a path that winds over the bridge and off into the distance.  I envision that path connecting the whole valley, one clan to the next.

As we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year I hope we remember the rich, colorful heritage that so many Americans descend from.
