A few months ago I was commissioned to do a painting inspired by the poem called ‘The True Love’ written by David Whyte. If you haven’t already seen and read about the first ‘True Love’ painting I did – you gotta check it out – its such a touching story —> TRUE LOVE I.
I had originally created two sketches for my client at that time and she chose the sketch with the boat. However, I knew I wanted to make the other sketch into a painting one day as well and so awhile ago I started working on it. Then other projects came up, things got in the way and it wasn’t until today that I picked the piece up again and finished it off.
The poem includes references to the Scottish Hebrides and so this new painting is inspired from various photographs I’ve seen of those lovely coastlines.
