commission: sea of shared memories

This is another commissioned work that I have recently finished.  I love how the colors worked on this piece.  My client commissioned this as an anniversary gift for her husband.  This piece presented the interesting challenge of incorporating eighteen years of marriage into one 18in x 18in canvas–without the work looking too chaotic.

I admire this couple.  In the military, it is very difficult to sustain a long, stable, loving marriage.  Therefore, I was happy to create a work of art to help commemorate their life together.
