As mentioned in my post from Monday, last summer I had the opportunity to work with a wonderful client who commissioned several paintings for wedding gifts. This piece was created for an outdoorsy and adventurous couple with ties to Door County, WI. My client provided me with several photos to use as inspiration. Those images, combined with some of my own from Door County, were used to create the final piece. Their names and wedding date were subtly worked into the painting that only became noticeable upon a closer view--kind of like a happy surprise for the couple. Totally my client's idea which I think was awesome!
the names of the groom and bride written in the sand (so romantic!)
their wedding date in the ripples of the water (even more romantic!)
There is always a wonderful story behind commissions and the people involved. I loved being a part of this gift, and by the end, I felt a connection with the newlyweds even though we had never met. That is one of the special things I enjoy about painting and the opportunity to share my art with others.
