Since 2009 I've had the honour of translating about 40 clients' wishes and memories onto canvas. In the earlier years when my career was just beginning, I began taking commissions for custom paintings. I used to put unnecessary pressure on myself to make each painting perfect, rather than just go with the flow and let the painting unfold naturally. In short, I stressed myself out over them. But when each client was moved and elated upon presenting them with their finished painting, the stress abated and soon commissions became my most meaningful and moving work. It really is an honour to have a client share their story with me and trust me to capture it in paint. I'd like to share with you some of the commissions I've done over the past few years.
From now until December 15th, you can save up to 30% if you order a custom painting for me to complete for a date of your choice between January and April, 2014. The price includes free National and International Shipping. This promotion is to help raise funds for a project I'm embarking on in May for a year, called The Painted Road Project. I'll be taking my Ocean Art Studio out on the open road, recording my journey from Canada to Panama in various art forms, and connecting with communities to build a greater audience for a sustainable art career.
