Irish Eyes

One of the cool things about going to Ireland is that I get to go inside of people's homes. When my wife and I travel, we usually only get to see the inside of our hotel room. You have to know people to get inside homes. The last time we were in Ireland we stayed at my cousin, Miriam's house. Her mom, Mary, has a beautiful home on the same property. Yun and I spent an afternoon having tea and cake inside Mary's house. It's a very cool old school Irish style house. There are little fireplaces everywhere. We loved it. She has a fantastic little garden out front too. Flowers seem to be blooming all year long. I did this drawing as a tribute to the hospitality we were shown.

Beautiful! I like how you handled the garden. It's a while since I've been in Ireland, but I remember this style of Irish house straight away.

Unfortunately, the cat sitting by the window passed away recently.

Tommy, what an incredible command of the light source and mind-blowing patience as you drew all of those little pebbles and stones. This was truly a treat to witness your story.
