A blog about my thoughts and my love of artwork as it develops. It reflects some of the basic steps that I go through to achieve the artwork which is eventually presented to Spicher and Co, an innovative design firm that manufactures artwork for the trade. The why, what, how, and where are a few of the questions that I attempt to answer as I blog away! This is a tiny window into the life of a painter, and my hope is that my love for life shines through in the objects that I work to create.

This painting is called SPAGHETTI NIGHT!
What a great time I had painting this family. All the children are grown, but this loving mother wanted to remember her children as they were when they were young. What a neat family. I enjoyed meeting the mother, whose name is "CAROL. " She was so much fun to talk to on the phone, and I felt like I knew the kids till I was done with the picture. The only unfortunate part was that it took me a 1 1/2 years to compete it, which is too long. :(
I am truly sorry that the resolution is not a little better for this piece, but I was thankful for the photograph. This lady has an amazing kitchen!
