Irish eyes...

"Irish Eyes," 5 x 7, 140 lb Fabriano Artistico cold press paper
The world needs a smile and this gloomy St. Pat's day never seemed so drear.
Though not Irish, I thought of that old Bing Crosby song, "When Irish eyes are smiling."
So today's watercolor is for a smile and some beauty to brighten the day.
And here's the verse:
"When Irish eyes are smiling
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing
When Irish hearts are happy
All the world seems bright and gay
And when Irish eyes are smiling
Sure, they steal your heart away."
