Dream Commission!

Lisa was looking for art for her gorgeous new European-styled home, and happened upon my website! She was instantly attracted to my subject matter of Aspens and European countrysides, and loved my use of bold color! We were a perfect fit. She emailed me pictures of her house, and asked me if I could help her with her niches! She has 2 in the front entry way, and 2 upstairs in the master bedroom. I was was thrilled with the challenge! I knew instantly that colorful paintings on canvas, stretched to fit perfectly inside the niches, was exactly what she needed!

I happened to be in the Bay Area for my sister-in-law's wedding reception, so I suggested I swing by the house to see the niches in person. I really like to see the project first hand. It helps to get a feel for which subject matter would be best suited for the space. Matt came with me, and we met Lisa and Mark at their home in Pleasanton. After showing us around the house, we sat at the dining room table and browsed through my portfolio together. We decided the two niches in the entry hall would work splendidly with 2 aspen-themed paintings. Bright and vibrant reds, oranges, blues will be just the thing needed to bring alive the very neutral walls and decor. Both Lisa and Mark want lots of color, so two tall, vertical aspen scenes will be perfect for the front entry. For the other two niches upstairs in the Master bedroom, Lisa and Mark thought "European" themed paintings would be well suited for their Tuscan style bedroom. I agreed! We decided to do a lavender field and a poppy field with rolling hills and olive trees in the distance. Both paintings would "flow" into one another, as the niches are quite close in proximity. I think it will look fabulous! I can't wait to get started. All in all, it was a delightful visit, and I'm thrilled that Lisa and Mark picked me to create 4 custom paintings that will be sure to add lots of color and drama to their already fantastic home!
