They have a big tent and people drink outside and it spills out onto the street. I didn't go, I was waiting for the bus and it stops right in front of Coleman's. I'm not into big drunken parties like that for myself but it was interesting to watch for about the ten minutes it took the bus to arrive. Then I went downtown and had a quiet dinner at Pastabilities - with a few cocktails! There's more photos of Saint Patrick's Day at Coleman's on my flicker page, just click on the photo to see the rest.

St Patrick's day is a big holiday here in Syracuse. We have a lot of people of Irish ancestry, mostly 3rd and 4th generation. Last Saturday the St Patrick's parade was held and I went for the first time (last 2 years I was sick!) I enjoyed it except for one thing, I was not dressed warmly enough! We had a week of mild sunny springlike weather and I was fooled into thinking that it would be a little warmer than it was. It was windy and rainy and my hands got very cold! Next year I am wearing a hat, huge coat and gloves.

This is an old painting that feels new to me! It's one I did for the only art fair I have done here in Syracuse - the Art on the Porches festival in the Strathmore neighborhood. I had forgotten about it until I unearthed it from storage while going through my backstock of artwork to go on Etsy. It's a 5x7 acrylic on watercolor paper.
It feels good to be getting back into doing artwork, I'm very happy.

This is an acrylic painting on paper which has also been digitally modified. This version is not much different than the original painting, I just painted some brighter colors onto it as highlights and made the background a darker orange.
