As you may know, for the past five weeks or so, I've been working on a very large (biggest canvas you can buy without it being specially made) commissioned painting for Grassfield Hall - a luxury bed and breakfast which opens its doors to customers for the first time today with owners Lisa and Alex Homer.
It's been quite the process and now it feels like I'm letting 'my baby' go out into the big wide world. This weekend the room (one of many) will be fully functioning with guests arriving.
So, without further ado - here it is!
Can you see the flowers in the middle of the painting reflect the shapes from the cushions (blinds etc)? The painting also comprises of three photos of Grassfield Hall which have been incorporated using mixed media. The flowers featuring on the bottom right hand corner, were the rhododendrons that were flowering when I first got underway in the beginning of June. The pale blue background colour is again from the textile print as are the other colours.
Lisa is having the painting and other rooms, property etc. professionally photographed by Emma Hammond (who has photographed my artwork for licensing on products in the USA/Worldwide. Also, Lisa has been interviewed by the local newspaper and so the article, together with photos will be published shortly.
I so enjoyed this challenge and really appreciate everyone's kind comments and encouragement. I'm looking forward to more artwork in the pipeline and wish much success for Grassfield Hall's owners and family.
