This is a pic from the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Ark.Yay!!
I "do" art all the time-daily, weekly. But a lot of the time, it's drawings for our clothing line,Mr P's Tees. (or little logo paintings for our retailers)
They needed a new outdoor sign and wanted to cool with different textures but also to last in our weather. They got me a piece of sheet metal to paint their logo on. I first cleaned it with alcohol,
(before the sign was up)They brought me this huge wooden board with all of these cool metal letters they had made.
I also created a large painting for The Gates Family that was inspired by Act 1:8 and their mission trips around the world. Love love love them and was lucky enough to travel with them to Wales a few years ago. This painting went through a few different turns before we landed on the right look for them and for their home.
(quick video of the process of this painting)The biblical verse is subtle and reads just enough but not so much that it takes over on the piece of work.
The next commission was for The Bishops in Monroe.
A drawing was also created for my friend Amy Kiefenheim. Her dad was retiring from teaching and coaching at WMHS and she wanted something special for all his friends and former students to sign.She brought me a few of his state championship rings for inspiration
They make me smile!
Love these quotes I see on Pinterest.....
