Thank you Helen for the amazing drawing of O'Reilly, my best buddy and companion for 15 years. Seeing your beautiful artistic rendering of him hanging in the hall with his collar on the shelf below is a constant reminder of the great times we had.
Your gift of not only capturing the likeness but also his personality and soul, keeps him present to me every day.
When we saw this painting a little before Christmas, we knew we had to have it. The colors and theme are all so masterfully organized in such a unique way, to depict a childhood favorite treat - and the size of canvas really allows the viewer to take time to study and absorb the art. The bright hues really bring a little bit of summer sunshine to our home, and we have loved sharing the piece with guests when they are in our home. We’ve hung the painting in our daughter’s room, but it could work anywhere in our home. Very talented and thoughtful piece!
