This couple contacted me a few months ago and asked me to create a large painting for over the fireplace in their new home. They wanted the painting to capture the spirit of our area here in Driftless of southwestern Wisconsin, but not be a specific place.
As part of my process, I asked them to choose some words that were meaningful to them at this time. I incorporated all those words and thoughts in the underlayers of the painting. Big nature afficionados and bird lovers, the trout stream and flock of birds seems to carry the intention for the painting, creating a very meaningful connection for them.
It was such an honor to work with this couple . When leaving to take their painting home, this was expressed: “This has been one of the best things that ever happened to me.” I am humbled by this and very thankful for the opportunity to work with them.
