A Break from the Work

One of my strongest memories is spending Sundays at my mum's family home in Lislea, Armagh. We had great times there as young children so when my brother's partner arranged with Chris to paint the family home from an old photo as a birthday present, I knew I wanted that painting as well. That was how I got my first picture by Chris. He got it spot on and it hangs proudly in my hallway. That was last year so when I decided to get a new painting it was an easy choice to turn to Chris again. There are so many beautiful pieces of work but I chose this print. It is just a beautiful scene of days past that you can simply gaze at and smile. I will be back for more in the not too distant future. Heartily recommend Chris' work and service is first class.

Present for Family

Bought this as a present for my In Laws. They love it. Reminded them of their own parents down the country when they were young. Lots of reminiscing and chat because of it. Pride of place in sitting room now. Great service and quality.

Beautiful Painting, excellent service

This was the second print we had purchased from Chris McMorrow. Both times he was a pleasure to deal with. He went out of his way to ensure everything went smoothly with an international shipment and we could not be happier. Thank you so much!

Just the perfect gift

I was looking for a rural scene for my dear father in law for a present. He grew up in rural Ireland on a farm and this print just gave me an image of how he’s described his early life.

My memories

The ordering process was simple. Chris McMorrow emailed me on status of shipping. The prints arrived securely packaged. I ordered 3 prints and they are very detailed. The break from Work is very detailed and brings many childhood memories. Thank you for capturing such amazing scenes with amazing colors, so life-like. Will definitely order again ! Claire A.
