A client contacted me to commission a painting of his wife for her birthday. He wanted a portrait of her in one of her happy places, on a hike, surrounded by the beauty of nature. I was happy to discuss terms with him and how I would bring to life a memory of a perfect, peaceful moment. When finished, the piece will measure 16 in x 16 in in a 20 in x 20 in floater frame, ready to hang. I hope that when all is said and done, it will evoke joy and calm for both my client and his wife.
To begin this commission, I spent some time blocking in the background and working on the values and colors for this painting before moving on to the figure’s clothing. There is something amazing about watching a new painting take shape and come to life right in front of your eyes.
Further along in the process, and her face is beginning to take shape. I sent this image as a progress report to my client, and this was part of his response: “I trusted you to do an amazing job. You have. I love your interpretation. Beautiful. Can't wait to see it finished.”
Here is the finished commission, and it was a pleasure to work on. It will be hung on the wall in it’s new home soon, where I hope it will bring a sense of calm and recall joyful memories spent in nature.
On average, you can expect to hear from me no more than once a month–and in my slow seasons, around every 2-3 months–so no worries about cluttering up your inbox. Subscribing is a great way to find out when my new paintings will be available, if I’m giving away neat stuff you might like, and any awesome new print!.
