"For Kristin and Nick," original acrylic painting by Nancy Laliberte

9" x 12" acrylic

This is the third commissioned wedding gift painting I did for a client last summer. You can read about the other two here and here. My client's family is very outdoorsy and this couple was no exception. Supplied with reference material of the bride and groom from some of their trips together, and of their personal interests, I worked up several different compositions and color options. A design was then selected that best reflected the couple's personalities. It was so much fun painting the warm and cool colors of the mountains, and infusing some extra bits of color into the trees. I have pine trees outside my studio window, and I love seeing all of the beautiful colors in them as the light changes throughout the day.

This was another delightful project of which to be a part. I really appreciated the enthusiasm of my client; I loved the subject matter and working with the chosen color palette, and getting to know the couple in a round about way. I wish them a lifetime of happiness together! 

I am working on some new paintings – for a wedding, and a graduation - that I will later reveal, but if you would like to commission a special gift for someone, just let me know. I would love to help make it happen.
