A drawing by my Grandfather, Patrick J. O’Connor. Apparently, he did a lot of political drawings, like this,  and religious paintings in oil, but most are now lost. He was born in County Kildare in 1882, and died in The Bronx in 1949.   I never got to meet him, as he died almost 8 years before I was born. Mom used to tell me my talent came from him.
