Artist's Description

I’ve added another wet one to my watercolor kiss series as my annual March/ St. Patrick’s Celtic tribute.

The popular colloquialism stems from the legend of the Blarney stone. The ‘Cloch na Blarnan’ is a stone built into the battlements of Castle Blarney in Cork, Ireland. Kissing this stone is said to endow one with the gift of gab (excellence in flattery and persuasiveness).
Millions of people from around the world have traveled to Cork to kiss the famous stone.
If someone wanted to but was not able to kiss the legendary Irish stone, an Irish person would jokingly say, “Kiss me, I’m Irish”.

The colors of this kiss painting represent the national flag of Ireland;
Green represents the Gaelic tradition of Ireland, orange represents the protestant followers of William of Orange, the white middle bar is the hope for peace between them.
