My daughter recently moved and asked that I paint something special for her bedroom in her new house. My instructions were that it be big, with a black background and have bright flowers. She wanted to be surprised.
I chose to paint a chalkboard-inspired background that really makes the brightly colored flowers pop. And, it's huge!
Our friend Peggy who, with her husband, owns Barry Davis Produce Stand (be sure to like them on FB), had given Lauren a sunflower. The sunflower ended up being the focal point of the painting.
It was a thrill for me to paint for a specific person, specially my daughter. She loves her new SURPRISE painting!
