The following are commissions which include subject matter personal to the client and varying in style, size and subject matter. I have had so much fun creating everything from speed bikes to portraits.
This 24x36 Acrylic on Canvas commission was a gift from a sister to her brother, who races motorcycles.
I employed a contrast of techniques from the clear, sharp rider to the blurred background to give an illusion of speed.
This vintage camera was painted for photographer Steven Smith of The New Me Journey based out of St. Louis, MO. This is one of the more technically sound paintings I have ever done and I enjoyed every challenging minute of it. From the interior carpeting of the case to the reflective aspect of the lenses, this painting pushed me outside my comfort zone in the most beautiful ways.
This is a painting that was commissioned by a daughter for her mother of the house they grew up in. This one was particularly fun because the original photo I was given to go off of was taken in the summer, but my client wanted it to be a scene of fresh snowfall on a house that held so many memories for her family.
This painting was commissioned by a group of grandchildren for their grandparents. This scene is a lake in Leadville, Colorado. The family holds 15 years of camping memories here and their Grandma would sign their letters "On, Sail On and On" as it is written on the raft.
This giant jellyfish painting was a commission for a couple in Tampa who have a strong love for the ocean. In fact, they even live right on the water so they can wake up to the force that inspires them every day. It is a blend of acrylic paint, iridescent paint and iridescent powder to give the feeling of power and beauty that the Sea Wasp Jellyfish conveys.
This commission was completed for a family of die-hard Colorado Avalanche fans. They wanted an abstract background of the team colors with the jerseys in high-contrast. This painting now hangs high in their home for all the family members to see and cherish.
