It's finished and my customer loved it!  So it will be shipped off to Georgia on Wednesday once it's completely dry.  I don't know what's going on but this is my fourth large commission this summer.  My first was 36 x 72, then two 36 x 48's, and one 30 x 40!  I think everyone must have much higher ceilings than I have!  My only wish is that more people would send me photos of them hanging in their homes.  I would love to see how they look.  Here's to more commissions!  I'm getting good at painting BIG and I like it:)

Kiawah Commission - Another Big One! 30 x 40

Example of Commission
30 x 40
Oil

I was commissioned to paint a Kiawah Island Beach Sunset Painting.  The client sent me this photo for the colors and gave me details of what she wants.  More sky, less dunes, more water and the sun setting on the water.  This will be a 30 x 40 oil painting.  I will be working on it this weekend.  I'll post of photo of the final product once it's finished!  Stay tuned.

SOLD!  Having a good week.  Sold two paintings plus the commission.  This gem went to a man in Chantilly, VA so this is probably one of his favorite D.C. memorials.  I originally painted this for an art show that had to be paintings done in Arlington, Virginia.  I chose this view from the Virginia side of the Potomac River.

Commission - Positano Italy

I guess "large paintings" are back in style as this is the second commission I've received this month that is very large.  My last one was 3 by 6 feet and this one is 3 by 4 feet.  It's so much fun to paint big!  I actually prefer it to trying to capture it all on a small canvas.  There is something so freeing about it.  Both paintings went to the San Diego area.  I have two more requests for larger commissions of Kiawah, Island that I may be working on soon.  Probably not quite as large as this one.  I love how this turned out.  I really captured the essence of the hillsides of Positano.  Here's to lots more commissions:)

Wow.  I've sold five Bald Head Island paintings this year.  People really like Bald Head.  I will keep painting it.  I spent a wonderful week there with family a few years ago.  If you ever have a chance to visit there you should take it.  It's been a busy week for me as I'm also working on a commission of Positano, Italy that is 3 by 4 feet!  It's almost done.  I will share it with you in a few days.
