On the Wednesday after the show Mother Nature dumped 14” of snow in Coopersburg. It was a beautiful storm, transforming the Blue Church neighborhood into a winter wonderland. Shoveling out was a chore. My daughter and I took a break from shoveling and made a little March snowman, decorated with a bit of shamrock garland that I had used to decorate my car’s rearview mirror for St. Patrick’s Day.
March was a wild wintry month here in southeast Pennsylvania. We endured four nor’easters this month! Lucky for us, the most recent one arrived after the Blue Church Art Annual Student Show, which was on March 18th. That Sunday was a beautiful, mild sunny day. Over 300 people came to marvel at the 800+ beautiful artworks on display.
After one of the earlier March nor’easters some of the students at Blue Church Art created delightful snow people paintings…with a St. Patrick’s Day theme. Their cheery snowmen (and snow-women) are surrounded by shamrocks and snowflakes- and some have pots o’ gold and little hats that they’d snatched from leprechauns!
It's St. Patrick's Day! This past week the younger students at Blue Church Art drew whitewashed leprechaun cottages, surrounded by rainbows and pots o' gold.

Happy leprechauns are sliding on rainbows in these masterpieces:
One rich leprechaun keeps his gold coins on the roof, and another has a pot o' gold with coins piled almost as high as the rainbow!
Here's a little fellow who likes to toss his coins in the air for fun:
This funny leprechaun keeps his pot o' gold on his roof, along with a box of Lucky Charms cereal (he likes to count his coins while he's having breakfast):
Vivian LOVES cats. Her leprechaun IS a cat, with a rainbow tail:)
Some of these leprechauns have dog houses...
...and some have interesting architectural features, such as TALL chimneys, and shamrock-shaped windows. One lucky leprechaun has gold coins pressed into the white stucco on his tiny house:
Shamrock-shaped clouds float above these cozy cottages:
But life isn't always easy, living under the rainbow.
Leprechauns have to beware of humans who want to steal their gold. This unfortunate little guy is being robbed of his pot o' gold by a giant wearing Nike sneakers!
Leprechauns like to draw and paint, too! The leprechauns at Blue Church Art exhibited artwork at the Annual Student Show that was held on St. Patrick's Day weekend.
Lá fhéile Pádraig sona dhuit!
That's Gaelic for
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!
