A friend, who has followed my career as an artist for many years, approached me about creating this painting for her. An avid mountain climber and hiker, she had a specific design in mind, but also commented on attributes of other paintings of mine that she liked. After selecting the size and framing, we worked up a palette of colors, colaborated on the content, and agreed on the design of this painting. We are still in close contact about the details of this painting, which is still a work in progress.

I met this couple during a fund-raising event for our local library. Having the benefit of living in the same town as I do, they visited my studio to learn more about my art and inspiration. In return, I visited their home to discuss the project and review the location planned for the artwork. We spent a while discussing sizes, dimensions and hanging options. Then I introduced them to my palette selection game, and we talked about family, travel and hobbies. While listening to their stories, I knew what I would paint for them.

This client first saw and purchased my artwork from the A/NT Gallery in Seattle, Washington. He fell in love with the medium, and enjoyed my approach. When he started looking for specific artwork, but could not find it, so he inquired about a commissioned painting. My client and I discussed his desired imagary based on paintings that he saw, reviewed his color choices, and decided how many paintings, their sizes and framing.
