I am completed with the rush of four house art commissions in the past couple of months. Each were a bit unique but a little challenging getting them all completed before the holidays while teaching art full time. Hopefully more to come.
I am at the final stages for this 24x48 print/painting. Boys with Great Dane added in and iam now awaiting final approval.
I have been busy this fall with a few commissions for homeowners. Here is another sample in the early stages. It is always enjoyable to see the reaction to the owners when they receive the final artwork or their house.
Prints are available from these series of paintings/illustrations that I created which were inspired by our St. Vincent de Paul Church. More can be seen in this gallery.
I am beginning the process of adding layers of details. This will take several more stages before being ready for printing and then adding the final colors with pastels and pencils.
I have been busy lately with several house illustration so I am going to post updates on this current project. The final size should be around 36" x 50". By far my largest house illustration to date so I am anxious to see how this progresses.
I never seem to have enough time to create art just for fun or to experiment with different techniques or tools - something all artists need to do. Teaching takes up plenty of time which leaves me little energy to sit down at the end of the day to create new pieces. It usually takes a commission to spur me on to create at night. But.....here is a new piece which was inspired by the weekly art site, 'Illustration Friday.' I used to post to this cool site created for anyone to submit their artwork based upon weekly topics. But it has been years since I have created one. Perhaps I will make it a new goal to create more each week.
This is the final version of a 14" x 28" illustration of the interior worship space of Vincent de Paul Church. It was created for the parish annual fundraiser.
