This was a piece I loved working on and I loved creating. I finally was able to complete it to my satisfaction. After all the quilting and thread painting. I added Swarovski crystals as starlight in the background. I then added a backing and binding fo the same material I had used for the ashes.
I am very happy for the piece. i also am very happy that like the Phoenix, I too am slowly having a rebirth from the ashes of my lost relationship. I will survive. And I will go on to create!
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.
