When thinking of what to post this week, I was torn between creating an illustration to celebrate Pantone’s color of the year for 2013 and an illustration in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. Then I realized…. with Pantone’s color being emerald, I don’t even have to choose!

I don’t have much in the way of green in my wardrobe — and I don’t know why since the color’s so festive – so I really ought to change that. And with it being “the color of the year” I’m sure there’ll be no shortage of emerald pieces to choose from in stores. In the meantime, here’s a few watercolor doodles of some fun emerald pieces I found on Modcloth. Anyone else finding any inspiration in Pantone’s pick?

And happy St. Patrick’s Day to all who celebrate it!
