This is almost all of a new commissioned piece for a dear friend. The 4 trees represent the family. The small one on the left is the hope for a boy... there is some blue in the tree, and the small one on the right represents the girl who is here, there is some lavender in this tree.


I listened to a lot of jazz/ love themed songs out of New Orleans ( www.wwoz.org ) to keep the mood right. Absolutely I enjoyed doing this and putting lots of love into as well.





These two images are the same, the one below is without the flash...



Left side, a bit dark without the flash...

The dad, who I have yet to meet, hopefully one day, is a lover of Autumn in Ohio. I actually started this in November, but was forcing it and ended up painting over it. Underneath what you see is a new underpainting.... Just some play with lines, hearts, shapes and positive words. Then with a deep breath and some prayful words,, I was off and really enjoyed this!
CHEERS!
