SOLD ♥The sweet part of painting commissions is that they
frequently center around an emotional request. As
I care a lot about my painting, and like to work
on projects that have meaning, that makes me
The client who commissioned this picture was
inspired by the house paintings I did for a client
last year. The twist in this case is that the family
who wanted the painting is moving from Toronto
to Calgary for a year, and wanted a portrait of their
house to remind them that they will be coming back.
12 x 12 inches is not a large space for a house
and four running figures! Quite the challenge.
But what a treat today when the mother and
father of the family came to pick the painting
up to get it packed for its flight, and they both
loved it! Hurray! I felt like I had wings too,
and could fly alongside the plane.
But there is work to do. So I am here.
Props to the wonderful family who bought
Have a making-people-happy day.
