Here, at last, are photographs of the commission I painted a few weeks ago for Sonya’s hair salon. We put the paintings up this afternoon and we’re really pleased with how they look. There’s a photo of Sonya with her paintings in the slideshow below.
As I mentioned in my earlier post, the inspiration came from the salon, from nearby Barrington Park and the Cashmere hills, and of course from Sonya herself. Prince’s purple love symbol was a last-minute addition that Sonya requested and although it wasn’t part of the original composition, now I can’t imagine the paintings without it — I like the way it transforms the landscape from something abstract into something more personal.

Wonderful, your client must be thrilled.
Thanks. Yes, she is : ) Sonya saw them for the first time ‘in person’ when we arrived to hang them in the salon, so that was fun! Happy client, happy artist.
these look great – congrats on the commission 🙂
Thank you, Dawn : )
