Own two George Donahue original paintings! George has been involved with PYD since 1987 as a mentor, supporter and friend.

"Seahorse" acrylic 8"x10" canvas board matted in 15"x12" silver painted frame with glass.

"Beach Glass" acrylic 8"x10" canvas board matted in 15"x12" white frame with light blue matte

Inspiration: Years ago, when I was able to scuba dive, I saw a different world under the ocean surface. One time I held onto a clump of coral and watched a male seahorse mere inches away with tail clinging on and giving birth to thousands of baby seahorses. Later in the day at low tide I would walk along the shore and collect sea glass pebbles, small shells and a starfish and placed them in a clear vase. Scuba diving is gone but the memories of the ocean and what I observed are still there.

Artist Bio: George Donahue has been involved with PYD for years and has mentored three young adults and was a Youth Coordinator for one of the programs for many years. Always with a video camera in hand, George has recorded several PYD events.

George has had a form of Muscular Dystrophy called Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) since his early 20s, affecting the nervous system and peripheral nerves. The disease has progressed slowly over the years, mostly affecting his lower legs and hands, so that now he uses a manual wheelchair.

Since the onset of CMT George has continued a career in computer technology, started a small
business, pursued interests in art and
photography, married, contributed his
knowledge and experience to others with
disabilities, and raised public awareness about disability wherever he goes. George enjoys painting with acrylics. His first mural was about 30 years ago and with the loss of sensation in his fingertips due to CMT and many brushes filled with paint dotting the floor, he found acrylic paint was easier to clean up than oil paint.

Shipping is included within the continental United States. Not including AK and HI.
