SAINT PATRICK

Thought I'll do a quirky quick  post for Saint Patrick Day. The only green I'm wearing are the green patches on the outside of my hat and inside my hat the Irish label.  I hung the hat on my ironing board, which happens to have a green support! .

You know this hat, because its has been on my sidebar for a while in February.
The green I like the most is the olive green (which is a brown-green)., 
second is teal green, then comes forest green (very dark green),
sap green (mid-green), teal green, green gold, mint green, sage, grayish-green 
and lastly viridian (a very intense neon blue-green). 
Which green do you like most?
What are you doing today on Saint Patrick's Day? I'm  celebrating it with a window shopping spree, with my Irish hat of course.

Dark forest green has been my favorite color since I was a kid. Although I like all shades, I feel a kinship with the forest.

In fact, I do believe I will go for walk in the forest today, in honor of St. Patrick's Day!

Happy day to you!

I like the forest green, then the olive green--lastly the blue greens--teal maybe?

Lovely hat!

You have a cap! a hat is worn by the ladies a day at the ascot races bring out the hats in all shapes sizes and colours. but you definitely are wearing a cap. some call it an andy cap, made famous by the cartoonist,Andy Capp is a British comic strip created by Reg Smythe, seen in The Daily Mirror and The Sunday Mirror newspapers since August 5, 1957.

Great hat and a fun way to celebrate!

At story time today I read stories about all kinds of different things that are green and of course I wore green to match my green Irish eyes.

Clytie,
enjoy your walk in the forest! Forest green, sap green and olive green are the most used greens in my paintings.

Here I have to drive a few hours to come to a forest where it's relatively quiet:) In fact I don't know if there is a place in California (may be at the Northern tip) where you can't see people
for miles LOL

Beth,
Since teal green has been in vogue for a year, I'm warming up to it:)
Since it's a remembrance badge I thought I could leave it up in the sidebar for some weeks.
It's hard to lose a pet -that's why we decided not to have one (also in the past we traveled way too much).
Have you thought on getting another kitty, or not?

Tony,
Dear friend, here in the USA a cap can be called a hat. Actually, in the NETHERLANDS where I'm originally from, too.
This is a cap made in Ireland, that's why I posted it for St. Patrick's day:)
It doesn't matter to me if the hats or clothes I wear are for males of females -it's an artist thing - LOL - and probably also a cultural thing:) hope you're not offended, but this is my personal opinion.

Jen,
So, I guess you had to work...Is Wed. story time in the library? My first job was in a library, and Wed. was story time for the kids!

O wow, you have green eyes? I love green eyes (I wanted green contact lenses once,
but hubby objected:) )

Hi Jeanette

first I want to say thank you for your kind comment on my blog today. My husband is Dutch in 3rd generation, I'm Swiss from Zurich :)

I have subscribed to your blog, it's very, very nice. I like it very much. I have seen also your other blog about your paintings. My husband is a fine art painter also, I'm "only" a photographer - with big passion since many years.

Very nice to meet you and let's keep in touch :)

Happy St.Patricks Day back to you - we don't celebrate it at all. But I do love dark beer!:)

Green is one of my favorite colors but I confess that sage green is close to my heart. It's so peaceful. But, really, I'm happy with any and all shades.
Your hat is fun and suits you. I tried some on in Ireland but not for me, apparently.

The Green Stone Woman said...

Here in the Netherlands we don't observe St Patrick's day, of course, and nobody goes around wearing green, but I must say that several shades of green are my favorites and it all depends on my mood which I wear, but I don't like any of the loud colors. Not apple green or mint green or blue-green. I like the darker shades of green, the quiet ones. I like your cap. It's quite becoming.

A Lady's Life said...

Thats a really nice hat/cap and great for the Irish holiday.
I would love to wear it.
:)

Susanna,
That's quite a compliment from a photographer -thank you! So you have an international marriage, like mine -I was born in Indonesia, so I'm half Dutch and half Indonesian (by race),
Susanna, I consider Photography just as much an art as painting -so to me you're an artist!

To keep in touch -I very much would like to:) The "celebration" of St. Patty's day was tongue in cheek, LOL - I don't like beer, but red wine -yes!

Stephanie,
Thank you friend! If I have any Hollywood in me, it's hats LOL!
Like to knit with sage green, because it is like you say a very peaceful color.
Sorry you couldn't find any hat in Ireland -is that your heritage?

Irene,
Only recently I tried a forest green sweater, and I think I like it! Yeah, I don't like any of the loud greens either!
Thank you Irene, this cap/hat is warm and cozy in the winter (for the REALLY cold days in the 40ties -haha)

A Lady's Life,
Thank you, I like this hat too, and no you can't have it (you know I'm just joking, I hope:) ).

Rafael Lam said...

Thanks jeannette stgermain, nice to meet you! ^.^
I also like modern art, sculptures and painting!

The Muse said...

Thank you ever so SINCERELY, for the wonderful wedding wishes... :)

Yes, your hope is the best one of all, to be sure :)

Mmmmm yes, I loved your hat! ha ha ...i am a hat type of gal myself...and you look so chic!

I like all shades of green, but they don't all like me :) I tend to look better in muted greens...
nut I will sport vibrant and teals in accessories :)

Whitemist said...

You look really good in that hat! Hope you had a great St paty's day!

jeannette stgermain said...

Rafael,
thank you for the "follow", friend! I really enjoyed seeing your photos! You have the eye of an artist!
I figured you liked modern sculputres too! Whenever convenient maybe you like to browse on my 2nd blog page ART NOTES (click on top text in right side bar) or scroll further down on this page to "links to my favorite sites", or log onto www(dot)stgermainart(dot)com - enjoy!

Muse,
Those were really happy wedding pics, Muse! and...I would like to have seen your dress too, but I didn't want to put you on the spot ag your blog:)

Oh, you should see the women of my neighborhood (the high end of Orange County:) -I look very casual in comparison LOL!

About the greens, so it is with me, since I have many yellow tones in my skin. One of these days I'll make or buy a necklace with turqoise (more leaning to teal) in it...

Joewy,
Thank you friend! I'll have to visit your blog to see what you did on St. Paty's Day:)

My favourite kind of hat. In my newly hairless life I find I must wear a hat (or cap) whenever I go out and it like this style the best (of course I don't look anything like a good in it as you do).

jeannette said...

Barry,
You're funny -I think women always look better -with anything they wear (my prejudice!) - I can imagine that right now it's too cold without any covering. But your hair will grow back, right? (Can't remember if you had hair before all the treatments started...)
