  1. I've had to move house recently, so organizing and maintaining stuff has been taking up a lot of my painting time, but I *did* paint these two up in about 3 hours on St. Patrick's day. Hopefully, as the first minis painted in the new place, they will be auspicious and bring good fortune! NEVER CROSS THE FAIR FOLK Leprechauns are popularly portrayed as wearing the green, but some of the older tales go out of the way to mention their bright red coats. Tincup adheres to the old ways. Finn is enjoying a drop of good stuff; Tweed seems to have indulged already. Slainte, all, and good fortune to you! Hope to be posting more regularly now!
  2. Sorry if this has gotten repeated, I remember typing it up somewhere on these forums. So I didn't want to do another leprechaun in green, so I started looking for source material where they were described. An Irish Poet in 1830 wrote the foundation story about leprechauns that separated them from other fairies, ie that you can hold them for ransom, but they are likely to trick you to avoid paying. but the poem only mentions silver buttons. One of his other works talks about faries in green coats, red hats with an owl feather, but the author seems scared of them so they might be more red cap than leprechaun. W>B yates the famous irish poet co-wrote a book of folk lore and he described leprechauns in red coats and gold buttons, mentioning them as wealthy shoemakers. but this was 1889 - 60 yrs after the original stories. Every source since them mentions the wearing of green. Im still going with red. The Scarf is in the pattern County Armagh - in northern Ireland, as Irish tartans are done by county rather than family. It is the best tatarn I have done, but blowing the picture up so you can see it shows the flaws. ah well.
