50th Birthday Gift Caricature

50th Birthday Gifts Ireland

50th Birthday Gift Caricature: this piece went to Cork for a 50th birthday earlier this year. The birthday girl is surrounded by her pets including a cat, a pair of alsatians, a lamb and a chicken! The hand santiser has been a feature of several pieces I’ve done recently for some reason 😀
In the background is her house, a horse and the Trawler Boyz “rolling restaurant” she runs with her 3 sons (a familiar sight around Ballycotton I believe!)
