This is the third of a recent commission of four. (These first and second works.)
This is the first in a charming series of four, recently created for a client. We decided on four 12in x 12in works instead of one 24in x 24in work, because they would be easier to travel with when she moved back to the US. I loved this series because I was able to use... Continue Reading →
