Gardens & Parks by Arnoldo L. Romero

In celebration of the life of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, I decided to do a quick marker sketch of a garden with a leprechaun's home entrance in my art journal.  I used a photograph that I found online here as reference for the door, and incorporated the clover foliage and mushrooms from my imagination to complete the composition.  The Irish prayer that I lettered comes from "An Old Irish Blessing" found here.  May you have a blessed St. Patrick's Day!

  1. Thanks for the good wishes on St. Pat's day Arnoldo. My ggrandad was Irish, so this is dear to my heart :-)

  2. I love the prayer and the leprechaun's home is just perfect! I wish the same to you, Arnoldo!

  3. Happy St. Patrick's Day! This is very Irish garden looking!

  4. Great composition Arnoldo. What a fun place for a leprechaun and I wouldn't mind entering that little hideaway as well. Great job. Oh the luck of the Irish!

  5. Sweet little door for a leprechaun.

  6. A nice fantasy picture, just right for a leprechaun. Fancy, I live in UK, but didn't even know that we had passed St Patrick's day. I think we don't live in a very Irish area here …… though like Ann, my granddad was Irish. I love the drawing - and "May the road rise up to greet you" as the Irish saying goes.

  7. Your Irish prayer is very touching and also your imagine to it. I had heard of St Patrick´s day somewhere. Blessings, Arnoldo!
