I dream my painting and I paint my dream. Vincent Van Gogh ~
LifeExpessions are paintings that people commission me to do either for a loved one, a special friend or even themselves. These very personal paintings are created just for this person and features what they are passionate about in their life. Capturing the essence of the person and what they love in life is very important to achieve in these paintings. For instance, one of the LifeExpressions commissions I created for a client called World Traveler (see below) was for a person who loved to travel and adored elephants, so these were expressed in this particular piece. Their favorite color was also used throughout the painting.
LifeExpressions painting commissions are done on an 8”x8” cradled substrate that is archival and acid-free. The finished painting is protected with several coats of satin (low-sheen) acrylic polymer varnish which is resistant to chemicals, water, abrasion and ultraviolet radiation. Also, I paint the sides of the cradled panel with acrylic. Cradled panels allow you to hang your work with no additional framing. The mediums I use for LifeExpressions paintings are archival ink, acrylic ink and/or alcohol ink. All inks are waterproof.

I knew elephants would have to be a major part of the design. And since you travel the world, I decided to put a stylistic/contemporary world symbol in the center with a jet portraying your travels around the world. In the center surrounding the world are four separate quadrants representing you; the top left are Celtic symbols representing your heritage, next to that is a fish representing not only your scuba adventures but the sun sign, Pisces that you were born under. On the bottom left of the circle are tulips, a symbol of beautiful Holland and next to that are more Celtic symbols, but I also added a round element at the top of them because they reminded me of the sitting yoga position, which is a part of your workout regimen.
