I painted this small still life in my studio on St. Patrick's Day. My wife and I have always been intrigued by anything Irish. Guess you could call us "Wild Geese"... a term often referred to the Old Irish Regiments who left Ireland to fight in foreign countries but later referred to those who left Ireland for the new country and a new life. My wife and I will spend 11 days in Ireland this summer in search of family "roots"... "tubers" in Irish.
