The theme word this week is GREEN. St Patrick's Day is on March 17 but your green art doesn't have to refer to that. Any green will do!!
My heritage is 100% Irish. In the late 1700's, the Irish people rose up in a rebellion against Britain and they wore the colour green to identify themselves as rebels. Believe it or not, "the wearing of the green" was prohibited and the penalties were severe, the most common one being transportation to what was then called "Van Diemen's Land" (now Australia!). My ancestors came to Australia in the 1840's but I would quite like having a convict as an ancestor!
Have fun with green.
