Commissioned work is so fun to create!
And when the commissioned work you are creating, is for a special memory, and something that can be enjoyed by so many all the better.
This was a great project for a friend and I honestly was a little nervous that I wouldn’t be able to create something from photo. The photo was taken by the family on a cell phone.
My first thought when I spoke to Debbie was that I would brighten it up, make the whites white and the blacks black. However once I downloaded the photo and saw it this was not going to work. That meant I had to put on my more creative hat and less technical hat. How could I make something out of this that would capture this scene, use the photo and touch the family in a special way. You see this barn has been in the family for many years and is a special memory for them. I wanted to be sure to keep that memory and preserve the scene.
I decided it was time to use some techniques I use on my architectural work. And guess what, it worked! The end result turned out perfect and the family is so happy with the end result.
I love creating fine art and commissioned work is so special and satisfying. If you have a special memory you want created into something unique and specialjust let me know.
Commissioning an artist to create something for you is always a great way to have something unique just for you. Many people forget that some artists want this type of work as much as someone to buy the work they have already created. Remember that commissioned work can be affordable, accessible and meaningful. Next time you want a special gift find an artist you love and have something meaningful created.
