Mika, Bruno & "The Auld Lammas Fair"

"Mika" in her favourite Winter position

on the sofa in front of the fire!

"Bruno" looking serious 

[for a change]

I thought it was high time to introduce our two furry friends - Mika, an 8 year old German Shepherd and, Bruno, our 2 year old 'singing' [totally nutty] Chocolate Labrador. 

I have been really quite busy over the winter and, health hasn't been great.  However, I did manage to finally finish "THE AULD LAMMAS FAIR", an oil on canvas 24" x 36".
It is a private commission and, I'm told, will be hanging in 'pride of place' in it's new home.  
This is an important painting, not only because a few of the key characters portrayed, have since passed away.  Moreover, the famous 'Market Day' depicted [always the second day of the Fair], as well as some of the old buildings, are no longer in existence.
Thanks to the McAuley family for permitting me to share this image ...
