"Cottage in a Hay Field"

I like discovering what prompts people to buy an original piece of Art. This is a painting I just finished up for Krista Davies from the UK. When she commissioned the piece, she knew exactly what she wanted. Her painting had to include: a yellow hay field, big red poppies, blue sky with white puffy clouds, and a stone cottage. Below is the sweet email she sent me detailing her reasons for commissioning this painting:

Hi Jen,

I'm SO looking forward to this painting, I have to tell you. I just thought I'd like to tell you of the story behind why I'm so particular... If you don't mind. Sorry if you do... It's just when my grandmother died she left a certain amount of money to each of her grandchildren... to buy something that would always remind them of her... and instead of buying something like a digital camera or golf clubs... I thought it would be nice to have something which would actually do what she wanted and, remind me of her. Not that she needs something to be reminded by, she was a lovely person whose rememberance did not need a reason. But I thought of a more thoughtful usage for the money, I really think she would love the painting. She loved nature and flowers as I do and I know that every time I see that painting I will remember her. Thanks for listening.
