Each year I make customers a handmade gift. This year I made small snow scenes . I have one customer I always do something special for. I took a photo of her house 2 years ago and so I found the photo and made a small painting for her desk of the house.
I was asked to paint a Tuscan vineyard in an Italian restaurant that was opening in Tellico . Other than that I was given freedom to create. This is the dinning room and banquette room along with a mural in the ladies bathroom and men's bathroom.
One of my clients I have known for over 20 years showed me photos of her grand kids and it gave me an idea for her Christmas present. I did separate paintings in watercolor of the kids and gave it to her. She sent me a photo of how she had it framed. It turned out just lovely. She said the little boy came over and the first thing he pointed to when they came in was the paintings. I am so glad they will enjoy this for years to come.
As we grow older we remember the time of our childhood and a smile comes across our face. One of my hair clients brought me a photo of an old run down home that once was the place of his birth. The gentleman was in his seventy's and the photo just showed a corner of the house. He asked me if he told me how the rest of the house looked could I paint it. This is the finished painting of his old home surrounded by the sun brightly shinning down of the long blades of grass and wildflowers surrounding his home place.
