Inside the Studio: Commission in Progress

I'm so thankful for each and every person who has invited my artwork into their homes. It's such a privilege and honor to have my work become the backdrop to my client's most cherished memories at home. 

Here's a dreamy detail shot of a 30x40 commission that I've been working on this past week:

The lively brushwork and little notches of color remind me of the extra sweet notes in a melody. Music is always on in my studio, and I can't help but feel that the movement, punctuation and tone of what I listen to over and over again has influenced this piece.

I can't wait to finish this piece and send it off to its new home in North Carolina!
