In a Engineers Home....


30"x 30"
acrylic on canvas

Here is the finished commission (custom artwork) I did for the couple that I mentioned here

They have a beautiful home, but they wanted more color in their living room. Her favorite flower was the Gerbera (gerber?) daisy and I agreed to do a painting of a floral arrangement.  I said, since I am doing this just for you, do you want to put some meaning into it?  Maybe a letter from a grandmother; photos; a memorable item; a vase? They decided on vases. The tall vase is from his grandmother, (all the way from Ireland) and the lady's head is from her mother. 
They loved it! 

Listening to while I paint:
Podcast:  Alec Baldwin hosts, "Here's The Thing"
                 Peter Sagal hosts,   "Wait, Wait.... Don't Tell Me!"

Audio Books:   Jules Verne author of Around The World In Eighty Days, narrated by the                                        FABULOUS  Jim Dale!

Great painting, It's great when you can personalize it like that. Truly one of a kind!! I also love that you post what you were listening to while you painted your painting. I think I'm going to steal that idea. I had not heard of Alec Baldwin's show. Now I'm downloading them all!!!
