Second Time Around – New Painting

Home2_ 2'x3' - acrylic on canvas_Small

If you’ve been following me for awhile this new painting (above) might look familiar to you. Below is my original piece done in 2011 –>

HomeThis painting was actually inspired from the photograph attached below. It was taken by my dear friend Cheryl Jaggers. It is a view looking down on our farm from the up on the hill to the East of us – see that wee little house on the right? That’s our home! Hence the reason for titling my original 2011 piece above, ‘Home’.

Evansbrae_0013My client loved the original ‘Home’ that I had done and commissioned me to paint a new but very similar version for her. It was actually super fun recreating this painting – I loved having the chance to try my hand at it again. I did change quite a few details and I added a barn instead of my house. In the end though I think I improved upon the original in some ways. (You’ll have to let me know your thoughts on that – I’d love to hear!)

Ok – so here’s the process – check it out –>

IMG_7575_SmallI really like to paint around the side edges of my canvas – I find it’s nice because then you don’t feel like you need to frame the final piece if you don’t want to.

Haven’t come up with a title for this new one yet… Any thoughts or ideas??? I’d love some suggestions!
