A finished commission!
I recently finished a commission piece which I had the pleasure of doing for a friend. It was a really enjoyable process and we started by talking about aspects she liked in previous paintings of mine that she would like to duplicate in her own work. She gave me measurements and I had some linen stretched to her specified size. Once we worked out the visuals the rest of the process flowed along pretty easily with little add ins here and there. Our wonderful technology (an iphone) made the job even easier as I was able to send frequent “wip” work in progress shots to make sure I was on track with what she wanted. Anyhow, it was a great creative and collaborative process and I am hoping to start doing more of this kind of work. I have been eyeing off large blank walls all my life and more so now than ever. A dream commission would be a mural size painting, a work on a grand scale!
Anyhow, be in touch folks!
Ps.. The text was an extra touch, a bit of verse to explain deeper the meaning behind the title we chose for the painting “around the corner”
