Irish Sally Gardens

This picture of the Hillman's I really like an awful lot. Rebecca and Dan set up a small holding in rural Ireland. A lot of activity happens around the kitchen table in a farm house.
At the front is there dog Moose and two cats, one of the cats is on Dans hobby horses that he makes in sheds out the back. There two daughters are being creative cooking and drawing. Bec is making felt dolls and Dan is working out the construction of a goat shed. Rebecca commissioned me to paint the picture. I have spent a lot of time at the house so remembered where everything was and Robert and I went over for a trip and visited them and made a little film. Mostly of us mucking around by the lake.
