Commissioned Art Work has always been very appealing to me.
I enjoy working with a client's ideas and transforming them into something tangible.
I go from the sketching phase to the final piece, keeping the client's input involved throughout the entire process.
This pastel was commissioned by a client
who wanted herself portrayed in her favorite place.
I related to this concept immediately,
although my "spot" is the Jersey Shore
and Amy's is in Vermont!
This commissioned oil painting and painted tables
were inspired by the ivy tea set design that is featured in both.
Pastels requested in a "Matisse" style, to match decor, draperies, etc.
