One Magical Day, Nothing but Happiness

A friend of mine got married recently and I couldn't get to the other end of the country for her wedding, but she did send me some mementos, including the wedding favours of shortbread biscuits with a Scottish theme.

It was these shortbreads I aligned in a few poses and then began to paint.

One Magical Day,
I wanted to say "wedding" all over it...

and then I wanted to play with paint some more,  so I arranged the favours in the shape of a four leaf clover and with an Irish blessing in mind, I painted this:  

Nothing but Happiness

May your troubles be less
And your blessing be more
And nothing but happiness
Come through your door

Blessings to you all! 


  1. They are both beautiful, Pat! And so are your sketches in your previous post!

  2. Pat,
    Great to have you back here. Your place looks really done up now. SO even more motivation to paint. :)

    I really liked the first one. It has a christmasy feel to it. The second one looks like a kaledioscope (check spelling).

    And you must be so hapy to have Missy's portrait. Kathryn is really good at portraits.

  3. Lovely Pat! It's made me feel hungry! :0)

  4. you make me both hungry and wanting to hug my hubby at the same time. Beautiful pieces

  5. Very nice! I love the different approaches you took with each painting. They are both beautiful!!!

  6. Dear Pat - caught up on your last three posts - love your wedding heart paintings - how creative...visit with your friend and sketches - so lovely and the art at the museum. Going out and google Liu Dan and Wu Quangzong - looking forward to seeing their work. House looks wonderful - bet you are glad the project is finished. Now you get busy painting - lol Debbie

  7. Beautiful mementoes of the marriage, Pat. :)

  8. Hi Pat, great idea to paint these wonderful biscuits, and you did it perfectly. Very nice watercolors. Hug!
