Celtic Roots


5 1/2 x 8 Original Pastel on Watercolor Paper, $60

I have some McGranahans and Mullens in my family.  I have recently discovered Pandora on my smart phone, and from time to time I select the Celtic channel.  Wow!  I can’t stop tapping my foot, doing a little jig as I paint.  It is the best medicine for feeling a little tight.  I loosen right up.  I have some Celtic roots that run deep.  When I let my hair go curly, I say I am sporting my Celtic look.  The loose rendition of the trees in this painting I found on an “artist date” in a park in Stockton, CA,.  It was early spring and the lime green was compelling.
