In late 2017 I was commissioned by a dear friend and art collector to create a series of thread paintings for her to gift her husband and friends based on photos from a vacation she had taken with her husband.
I was excited and challenged by the opportunity. Here are the works I created for her. Each was 5″ x 7″ and framed. I think they turned out wonderfully. She was very happy with them, and it reminds me what wonderful and personalized gifts the small pieces are.
I love to do commission work. I know a lot of artists don’t because there are so many variables to making a client happy. My artwork is so personal and unique to me. I explain very carefully how I have my own style of work and that I have a color palette that inspires me. I am happy, and in fact thrilled, when someone presents a photo to me of their beloved farm or home or pet and then allows me the freedom to create a one of a kind work of art based on that image.
I’ve been very grateful for the people who have trusted me over the last few years to create work s for them. Not only have they and I been very happy with the results, but each project forces me to grow a little more as an artist. I’m going to put a few of the pieces I’ve been proud of here to share.
