Yesterday I completed this commission for a family in the D.C. are.  It was an interesting piece for me to paint.  I've never done a mountain scene or hockey players or many southwestern patterns.  I enjoyed the subtle symbolism and color combinations.  Client is very happy. 
I have 5 commissions lined up !   I do plan on doing some of my own paintings in between.
Thanks for looking

Sea Of Love-Auction has begun!

As I mentioned on Facebook, I have begun working on a series of commission which will keep me pretty busy for quite a while.  I do hope to sprinkle in some of my own small paintings here and there as well. I very much enjoy the whole commission process.  I love hearing about each client's story, their background and what's important to them and how I will interpret that in a painting. 
I am conducting an experiment.  Many artists offer their work through auctions.  I am curious to see what would happen with this painting if I auctioned it.   I started the bid at only 100.00.  The painting was listed for 295.00 originally. Painted on birchwood cradled panel, sides are painted and it's wired and ready to hang.  9x12
After seven days the highest bidder gets the painting.

The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit. ~Nelson Henderson

My son Sam has been on vacation so I haven't been in my studio except for a bit in the evening.  I've been trying to finish up a painting that is almost done but it's not happening! This is a painting I did last year, part of my Tree Of Life series.  Thanks for stopping by.
