An older couple, that my parents knew, had a brunch a couple of springs ago around St. Patrick’s Day. It was a way of extending hospitality to a large group of friends all at once. Prior to eating the group enjoyed cocktails at an open bar. Then The group moved to an adjoining room to go through the buffet line. Round tables were scattered around the large room and one smaller room.

acrylic on canvas, 5" x 5"

For this painting I chose green and white because of St. Pat’s. I then added the peach color from table cloths used at the brunch. To simplify matters I painted concentric circles to make a plate using the three colors. I liked how this one turned out.


  1. Hi Mo! Happy Sunday to you. :D

    I like this one. Reminds me of the pinwheels on a stick we used to get as kids and blow on, and they'd spin around. Nice color combination.

  2. Daisy:

    Happy Sunday to you too. I miss that hour from springing forward.

    'Haven't had folks say much about this one. But it sold recently.

    I like the pinwheel interpretation. The color combination caught me by surprise - how it worked out I mean. Thank you.

    Mo : )
