The Gift by yaamas The Gift by yaamas
It was not the gift of the gold coin that touched the leprechaun's heart but the symbol that was engraved upon it. The fairy spoke of its meaning and all of his days of luck and gold no longer had any meaning to him, it was the fairy's gift that filled this leprechaun's heart with joy.

This original was painting using watercolor on Arches hot press paper. It measures 4x6 inches.

HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY EVERYONE!!!

I love the meaning behind this - and I also love the warmth you've managed to capture in the leprechaun's eyes as he receives his new found gift :aww:

Love the glow in this painting! The underside of the Leprechaun's hat looks like the underside of a mushroom. I don't know if that was intentional or not. But I like the texture you've created. I love the idea of little fairy's being God's servants on earth. That's the impression we've always tried to pass on to our children. :D

I like the symbolism behind this piece! That's the real reason behind St. Patrick's Day. Wonderful lighting and expressions!
Great job!
