Christmas Commission

Posted on | December 29, 2010 | 2 Comments

Ah … holiday week! And no far-flung travel plans that can be horribly delayed by rain or blizzards or anything else.

Since November, I’ve been working on a triptych of paintings for a client who had planned to give them as a surprise on Christmas. I finished the paintings a couple of weeks ago, but I have been waiting to post the photos. It would be pretty unforgivable if my client had kept the paintings a secret and then I had been the one to blow the surprise.

With Christmas as far behind us as New Year’s is ahead of us, I figure it’s safe to post the photos now. 

Here they are, side by side. Click on any of the three images to see more detail:

The colors are more muted than my usual, but as the piece came together, the brown, beige and gray started to remind me of a wintry forest.

I’m now working on a similar series of three, but this new group has more green than gray. (They need more work before they’re ready for their photo-op.)
