After a few months of collaboration, art discussions, proposals, and painting, I have completed and sold my second custom abstract landscape. The process has been incredibly rewarding and I learned so much from working with this latest client. It is so exciting to discuss an idea and make it come to life. Although very different from theater, painting can be an exploration of expression as well. I'm experimenting with different techniques and colors to create a piece inspired by someone other than myself. The idea behind this painting was to capture the feeling of the ocean and water without being too literal. Although hard to see in the photograph below, this painting involved many different layers and textures to give it a dreamy, almost foggy look.
