The above painting sat idly at Framing Grace Gallery for several months, when all of the other paintings within this series flew off the wall as fast as I could finish them. Gallery proprietor Joelle Behlmaier and I agreed to modify the colors from less emerald and royal to more tiffany box blue based on the feedback from gallery guests.
As I primarily paint on finished plywood frames, I am able to quickly sand layers away and add new without the risk of damaging canvas. I wanted to soften this piece overall and also add more life to the bottom corner that felt a bit empty before.
This piece demonstrates nicely that with my paintings, the work is never set in stone! Clients are more than welcome to provide input throughout the creation of a commissioned work. Texture, design, layout, and color can all be modified to meet your every expectation.
