It’s St. Patrick’s Day today!  I’ve celebrated St. Patrick’s Day in some way for as long as I can remember.  We’re not Irish but I did go to parochial school.  If you weren’t Filipino or Italian, you were most likely Irish. =D  Eons and eons ago, every St. Paddy’s Day, my classmates and I always wore something green with our grade school uniform.  I’ve been wearing green every March 17 since those days.

My challenge submission for this week is not a zentangle tile but a zentangle-inspired drawing.
All day I was trying to figure out which St. Patrick’s Day symbol to use as my tangle string – a pot of gold? lucky charms?  St. Patrick himself?  I had almost decided on drawing a golden horseshoe surrounded by shamrocks but as I was walking home from work, I collided into drunken twenty-somethings who were dressed in green and topped off with some kind of green hat.  So, I decided to draw the image below.  To me, St. Patrick’s Day is also a day to drink green Guinness beer, dance an Irish jig, kiss the styrofoam Blarney Stone, and hang out with leprechauns wearing green top hats.
