commission through Lifestyles By Darrell Bell Gallery

Happily a painting called "It Won't Be Long" sold at Lifestyles in May and the new owner decided she would like another painting or two to complement it. I haven't done a lot of commissions, but since I have several resource photos from the day of the storm I was pleased to give it a try. 

I feel so grateful for this new relationship with Darrell Bell and his beautiful new store. I feel like it has opened my eyes and mind to new possibilities for my art.
