I am happy to report that one of my commissions is safely with its owner, so I can give you all a peek :) this was a fun piece to create for a young woman as a birthday present-- her step-mom sent me a photo of her playing guitar and I gave the piece a retro vibe, since I was told that was something she liked. Her favorite colors are also dark pink and turquoise, so I gave her a bright pretty dress and some dainty turquoise jewelry in the shape of a beaded necklace.
What was also fun about this project is that a few months ago I created a pair of custom portraits for her dad and step-mom, who are both talented musicians themselves (you can see those paintings HERE) so I painted this portrait to give a nod back to those paintings (same background and strawberry motif) but it also stands well on its own, and while the first portraits had more of a 1930s vibe, this is more 1940s/early 50s so she's the 'younger generation' :)
As always, you are very welcome to contact me if you're ever interested in a custom painting! It's always so nice to be able to create something special for someone. The range of portraits I've done in the past is pretty wide too-- not just family and child portraits, but also wedding portraits, ancestral portraits, even portraits for authors of their heroes and heroines! It's always fun to bring those ideas to life.
Well, that's all for now! Chat with you later,
