A Harley Welcome

  • Artist: Peg Gerrity        
  • Medium: Oil on Board


For years, our dear friends in Singapore hosted wonderful gatherings in their beautiful ‘black and white’ colonial heritage home. Sometimes intimate with one or two other couples, often lavish affairs of a hundred, these events hosted by John and Kathleen provided many of our most cherished memories from our years living overseas. And in every case, the first one to greet us was their adorable dog Harley, who would eagerly welcome each guest ahead of the barefoot hostess, who would soon round the corner with fresh glasses of champagne. While the outside of the house was beautiful, I wanted this painting gift to reflect the treasure within: The large open door and entryway where the sense of welcoming was so strong that setting foot inside always felt like we were coming ‘home’.
