These next two cartoon- or childlike paintings of a dog and a rabbit are from around 1995, given as gifts to my and Maureen’s daughters, Deirdre and Brenna.
Steve lived with our family for about two years during the early to mid-nineties when the girls were of pre-school age, and has always been in their lives, pretty much on a weekly basis. Almost like a second father at times, a foundational part of their upbringing.
He asked them once, “What’s your favourite animal?” with the intention of giving them each a little painting. And gift them, he did: Brenna, rabbit; Deirdre, dog.
