I've spent the last three weeks working on a very special portrait commission, which was my first opportunity to work on a series of paintings that form one piece of work with a single theme (a Triptych, of sorts).  These paintings depict the special time spent between a mother and her three year old daughter, and were a surprise gift for her for Mother's Day.  Each painting is 9"x12", acrylic on canvas.  I found the best way to approach this was to literally work on all 3 paintings at once, instead of completing them one at a time.  That way I could keep the colors consistent, and have the feelings emerge as I worked.  This was a wonderful project for me, and I was thrilled to do it.  Please remember that I am available for commission, and would love to do a special piece for you, too!

For all you mother's out there, I wish you a blessed Mother's Day.
