Evolution of a Big Piece of Art

Here it is....finally....the very large piece of art that I was commisioned to do. I finally finished it and the owner said she loved it. So, it is ok to show you now. Since this was something new for me to do a huge piece of art....I took pics along the way to show the evolution of the project. (See slideshow at bottom of this blog entry).

It is a highly textured piece...the flowers are stenciled with texture paint, the bottom background has textured waves and imprints. The top is very spongy/imprinted. The vase, that is my favorite. The lady that ordered this painting revealed to me that she and her husband are building a new home. She wants the painting for a focal point when people enter the home. So, I added these words in texture paint to the vase:

"Love to all who enter this house,
Welcome to our loving home.
Love to all who enter our home
And take love with you
when you go."
You really can't read it unless you know what it says. But, I felt it would be a kind of blessing to their home.
