The last of winters work delivered!!

This is a huge 8 ft. table top painted for clients whose house overlooks a gorgeous ocean vista. They were very pleased. Commission work can be stressful- but oh so rewarding. Although I am often commissioned for one- dimensional paintings on canvas or wood panel, some clients also commission me to paint my scenes on functional furniture.
I don't really think of it as decorative...I'd like to think of it as a step beyond. I won't paint flower borders or frilly patterns. These are detailed paintings that happen to live on the front of a great cupboard, table top or even a door! Surprise!! The more unexpected the object, the more I enjoy it.
