This piece spoke to me, I enjoyed working on it.. It reminded me of where I was raised. My clients parents moved from their home where they raised their kids. She said the move was bitter sweet. The home was surrounded by woods and not a neighbor in clear slight. It was beautiful !
It was to be a surprise so I went out when they weren't at home and photographed the house. I like to do that so I get a feel for the HOME and I don't have to use just a snapshot of the house.
It's painted in acrylic, 24" x 18" ! I know I have 50 + hours in it, but I wanted it to feel right. When the client saw the finished photo (she is out of the area) she said that it 'brought tears to her eyes and it was incredible'.
below are the different stages of the painting.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
