A Painting About Hope

This painting was commissioned by a couple in St John.
They wanted red. I looked around, saw a lot of little pictures of Cardinal Birds and she told me how they came around their house in the summer...So the rest is history! I took it to the studio and went to town!

What I did for the background, I splashed the blue and actually painted individual clouds in the splashes...Yes, a pain but I did it and am very satisfied.

I thought I would share it.
This is the painting I was working on in my CBC interview for those who've seen it.

*A Painting About Hope*
Acrylic & some Ink on Canvas
30" x 40"

Here's me signing the painting in its home.

Next time I go to St John, I'll get a picture of myself with the commissioners with the painting.
