It is done and on its way! What a ride this one was! It went through many changes and that water gave me a run for my money, but I am so happy with the end result. The big commish is done! It is currently en route to Portland, Oregon! I am over the moon that my client sought me out and asked me to take on this project. He actually saw my show at the University Club last summer and contacted me in November to discuss ideas for a big painting. I think I have the best job ever in the world! ("Ever in the world" is a quote from one of my boys when he was about five.)
I listened to Norah Jones' album "Come Away With Me" over and over again while I worked on this painting. It was basically on a continuous loop. I never got tired of it; each song is magic. The mood of the music matched my energy, my thoughts and my emotions. The process of creating this painting was a wonderful experience. I actually feel like I know myself a little better. Pretty cool gig I have.
