Happy St Patrick's Day!
Here in Chicago they actually dye the Chicago river green. Then the parade begins shortly after. I had hoped to see it in person after seeing it on TV many times . We drove to the city for dinner but by the time we passed by the river it was dark. We could tell the water had a greenish hue to it but that was it. More interesting was our dinner experience. We went to a wonderful restaurant called HB Home Bistro. It is in the bar area where many young adults live. Parking was terrible but once we found a spot and got seated at a table by the window, the fun began. Being in the city on St Patrick's Day weekend is quite entertaining if you enjoy people watching. There was a wide variety of green apparel; green kilts, suits and tutus! And of course the accessories! Green glasses, beads and hats. Fun!
This tile was done on one of my hand colored papers with a green Micron pen and shaded with colored pencils. The two tangles are 'Paradox' and 'Lucky' by Adele Bruno.
This picture came from WGN Dean Richards. The dye used is orange when it first goes in and then a motorboat is driven around to mix the color in. And yes, the dye is eco friendly.
