For several years Barb and Dwight Purdy have been following my website and Blog in anticipation that one day they would commission a painting. They had just the spot in mind, too. The painting would go above their mantel in the living room. When they heard that I would be at Ardiri Winery and Vineyards over Memorial Day weekend...they drove up from Eugene to meet me and to possibly discuss the details of the commission. It was such a pleasure meeting them! They were like instant family. Before they left, we finalized the plans of their new painting--a 30 x 48 sunflower field with a Tuscan villa.
I finished up the commission and had the privilege of personally delivering "Toscana Gold" to their home in Eugene, OR. It was so fun to see these wonderful collectors again and to bring them the painting they've been dreaming about for years. They were delighted with the final result, and said it was perfect! I was thrilled.
