I don't think I've mentioned here just how much I love to paint commissioned works! There is something very magical for me in being able to take a glimpse inside someones life and then come up with a creation especially for them.....its like a shared collaborative work......where we put our heads together and talk about the colours that excite them and the meaning they would like their painting to convey.
This painting "Love Lives Here" was created for a very special client I now call friend, who, after the devastating loss of her husband at a young age, wanted me to paint something that would make the whole family happy when they saw it each day.
Her resilient spirit, beautiful gentle nature, strength, and fierce love for her kids inspired me while I painted......
I feel so grateful to have found my passion and to share it with others...
love does indeed live here,
i wrote a little more on the topic of love over here this week at Louise Gale's beautiful site Your Heart Makes a Difference
amor y paz!
