This painting was inspired by an old photo of my dad and my aunt-his sister Cathleen. I just loved the wonderful expressions on their faces and how it shows their true love for one another and for life. These two were so alike in so many ways, with same sense of humor and always making us kids laugh. I call the painting Irish Blessings because that's what these two were in our lives. Plus it looked to me like they were both wearing green so I'm assuming it was probably a St Paddy's Day get together in the 70s.
Here are a few close up details.
