Coming Home

I'm feeling really happy - this painting went over well. I don't do commissions often, but when I have I find it a nerve-wracking experience. This week I delivered "Coming Home" to Lifestyles By Darrell Bell Gallery where I met with the client, her mom and Darrell. I was very nervous because I wondered if it would measure up to what she envisioned in her mind's eye. Her reaction was quite immediate- and she loved it! Whew! She has recently graduated from medical school and this painting is a congratulatory gift from her mom. I am honoured that one of my paintings was chosen to celebrate this special accomplishment; I am grateful that she connected with my work so much that she wanted a large piece for her home. She is planning to move down east in the future, so I hope that when she looks at this prairie scene she feels like she is coming home.
