commission: with love from david and luke

I was very excited to create this commissioned work.  It was a Mother’s Day gift commissioned by a friend of mine as a gift for his wife from their two young sons.  His wife is also a friend and co-worker of mine.  She is a very sweet human who has always been tremendously kind and supportive of my work.

My client provided the basic size he wanted and a few rough guidelines as well as several photos of their children.  From there, he told me to do what I do best.  I tried to include meaningful visual elements, including her son’s initials, rustic farmlands, sunflowers and daisies.  Both were exceedingly happy with the work, and I was delighted to have had the opportunity to create a work of art specifically for such a kind human.
