My stash of paintings, ready to post, is no longer a stash....just a few images left to choose from. So now I am in the studio, trying to paint, paint, paint before it's time to leave again.
One of those images, is this, a commission I did in January. The client loved a similar small piece and ordered two 16x20 still life paintings. She was a joy to work with and did not even want to see an image of the completed works prior to receiving them. She said it would be "more like Christmas" if she was completely surprised when she pulled them out of the shipping container.
She sent me several images of her home in San Diego, wanting me to get a feel for the space the paintings would reside. I must have done something really good to be rewarded with the opportunity to work with such a charming woman.
