[Recently I completed one of my most ambitious pieces in a while- a private commission from Tara, for her boyfriend, Remi’s birthday. Go here to check out all the photos and the complete backstory.]
Though I haven’t talked about it too much on the blog, yes, I do private commissions. Feel free to contact me at [email protected] if you want to discuss further, Thanks.
Private commissions are fraught with emotion for me because I’m emotionally invested with the client.
One of my favorite panels was Symphony, an oil I created for a couple. The husband was an 80 year old jazz pianist and his wife a classically trained vocalist.
It was a vibrant representation of not only music, but their life together.
It’s always surprising to me – seeing the work that emerges from me when I know the people for whom I’m creating.
Do you use waterproof ink when you print out the black lines? I would have thought the red would smudge the black as you painted over it. Great piece. I bet they love it! Cheers!
I enjoyed seeing the process of the drawing – so brave to use the red ink.
