This painting was commissioned by an elderly Scottish/Canadian gentleman to commemorate taking his daughter back to Scotland on holiday. Because I have spent so much time in the United Kingdom, I was most comfortable with the idea.
By the Pond
I want a painting of my two grandchildren at the pond on our property was the request for this commission. All of the commission paintings that I produce celebrate some aspect of the commissioners life.
This girls grandmother asked me to paint her granddaughters old horse (right) and new horse. As you can imagine, this was a delightful task made even more fun because of the energy that sprang from this girl. Each commission is individual and challenging.
This hound is part of a commission that I completed for a pet food company. The models were supplied by the company.
Celebration of Love
My concern in this wedding portrait was not only to produce a revealing likeness of this couple but also to evoke the extraordinary event that their wedding was. It may be hard for the viewer to believe, but I did not exaggerate the floral content of that event.
Jordan and Nolan on the Lake
Many families have a place that holds many memories over the years. I was commissioned by the father of these boys to paint them at their special lake. Probably this painting doesnt mean much to the boys now but as they become older, I think this piece will take on a very treasured place in their hearts. What can be more of an heirloom than something that is totally personal?
