In 1993, a visitor to one of my exhibitions commissioned me to paint this oil on canvas of one of their award winning dogs, of which they had many. It was a really special gift to his wife. They had no family and she had limited mobility and was confined to a wheel-chair. She really, really loved these beautiful animals and would spend hours playing with them and caring for them. I know that this painting brought great happiness to both of them and I had great pleasure in painting it for them. A set of limited edition prints, signed and stamped by the artist, is available; email Mícheál for full details.
