From her earliest days, Sister M.I. Hummel loved to draw She delighted her family and friends with pictures of birds and animals. Portraits of young friends engaged in everyday activities were also among her favorite themes. As her talent matured, Sister Hummel still favored these subjects in much of her art including this ornament which features a boy holding cherries behind his back while a dog appears to be begging for what he has. This cheerful painting exemplifies her appreciation for the beauty in daily life-a reverence that has given Sister Hummel worldwide renown as an artist. This charming scene is simple, yet astonishingly fresh and appealing.
