A Classic Commission
This is a recently completed commission. It’s 24″x30″, gouache on Crescent board. The home, a bit over 100 years old, is in the historic district of Gadsden, Alabama. Its not as loose as I would normally paint, but the client was very definite about what he wanted. Within those parameters, I tried to present the house in a classic, dignified image. Doing a painting this size in the confines of a 36 foot RV was a challenge. Fortunately, Nell is very understanding, the gouache paint does clean up easily, and I am a reasonably neat painter anyway.
This one is soon to be on its way to the client. A smaller, 5×7 ink & watercolor whimsical piece, also a commission was sent out a couple of weeks ago.
We continue to fill our lives with a variety of projects, travels and healthcare appointments, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
