I've been suuuper excited to reveal this piece, which I've been working very hard on for the past few days!
It was a custom-made painting that was inspired in such a cool way, and it got me thinking that I'd really love to do more like it. My favorite pieces to make are always ones that I know are going to a good home as soon as they're complete, that will mean something special to their owner.
This piece was a birthday gift inspired by three kids and their Dad, who filmed them talking about what they loved about their mom. He sent me an (adorable) video, and I used the kids' words, descriptions, memories, and expressions of love to inspire a piece that reflected her.
I started by taking notes on the kinds of descriptions the kids were giving, what colors they associated with their mom, how they spoke of her demeanor, spirit, and love, and then worked to create the final product.
Below are some close-ups and descriptions of the process, symbolism, imagery, and coloring I chose- and information on how you can contact me if you would like a custom piece too! These love-inspired paintings are perfect for weddings, anniversaries, childrens' rooms, graduations, or just about any occasion that calls for something personal and heartfelt.
It was really cool to work on an abstract piece like this again. I haven't done one in a while but they always reveal to me the way my creative process continues to change, evolve, and become more layered as I commit to developing it.
I will be making more personal pieces like it soon I'm sure- and if you want one for yourself, a special occasion, or someone you love, let me know!
