This photo was taken in St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin, Ireland. I love parks in the middle of large cities. It’s a whole different world – green (especially in Ireland!), quiet and peaceful. This particular photograph was very popular at the recent Art and Wine Fest in Itasca, Illinois. I met so many wonderful people who were happy to share their own Ireland stories with me. They made the weekend fly! It was a very enjoyable and pleasant experience – and especially gratifying were the repeat customers from last year. Thank you, Itasca – see you next year!
