This contemporary print is of a young boy with a brown bonnet, lying on yellow grass next to a beagle puppy. He has his head clasped in the palm of both hands and looks deep in thought. There is a baseball just about visible in the corner. Jim Daly is an American artist that captures the memories of days gone by in his paintings of children and their pets. He wants his paintings to show life as good, honest and full of hope. The warm colors of brown, yellow and white reflect this mood. Framed in brown, “The Conversation” is ideal for a boy’s bedroom.
