Debra’s Heaven on Earth (16×20 oil on canvas, formerly Untitled 0.1.1) – Commissioned

It began with some instant messages on Facebook.

“I’m drawn to the abstract… it reminds me of the ocean for some reason…”

From there, we continued the conversation over email and it was soon that there was a specific painting project that was needing to be completed.

It all started from this picture.

Debra and I shared some emails to discuss final painting size, her connection to this photo and the timing to complete.

To say I was and am honored to work on this piece is a serious understatement.

Update: Debra has received her painting!

She posted this on Facebook after receiving. Very, very touching.
