Plumeria Down Under
September 1, 2014
An email arrived earlier this summer, someone asking about one of my paintings of plumeria. These are always fun emails to get, of course. This person was from Australia, making the contact even more exciting, to realize someone halfway around the world found my work and so enjoyed it they wanted to buy a piece. This person did end up buying that painting, and icing on the cake, they commissioned a second painting, based on a small one I posted on this blog a couple of years ago. The client wanted the commissioned piece to be larger than the original, so I got to adjust the composition, adding a more flowers to it, to make the larger format work well.
Here’s the finished commission.
I shipped both paintings together, and they arrived the other day, they have them in their “hot little hand. They are gorgeous – thank you so much!” Its so lovely knowing that something I loved making is going being enjoyed so thoroughly by someone else. Thank you back!
