One of the many paybacks of creating custom work for people is that I get to meet some of the sweetest peeps. And I'm always so honored that they like what I do.
And then, that connection, with that person, who appreciates something that comes from not only my hands, but my heart, is just a real joy.
I was given the opportunity to create the paintings above for a lovely lady and her daughters. What fun to create a full wall of work for these gals to enjoy!
And I love that creating a custom piece, will sometimes force me out of my own limitations. Of everything that I created for her, the "whatever" and "beautiful" canvases were two of my personal favorites. I took a chance on doing something different with these two canvases and I was really happy with the results.
This is one of the first canvases that I painted. Its fun to look back and see just how much my painting has evolved in just a little over a year.
And the thing I'm learning is that even though its sometimes frustrating, keep working. Keep painting. Keep drawing. Its like any thing in life, be it a sport, cooking, gardening…the more you do, the more you grow.
Growing and changing is good.
