Study for New Commission - 1.18.10

Study for New Commission

Photos of the Family Villa, Coccolia, Italy

This study is for my patron - a long-time customer - who's bought several of my paintings. My work hangs in her home in Denver, her aunt's house in Spain, and her parents' home in Belgium. She asked me to paint a composition of her husband's family home in Coccolia, Italy based on photos she'd sent. I provided a sketch of the composition for her approval before I put paint to canvas.

Quote of the Day
"If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people."
