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 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 created on a square 12"x12" cradled substrate that is archival and acid-free. This is the only size I offer for this type of custom work. The finished painting is protected with several coats of satin (low-sheen) UV acrylic polymer varnish which is resistant to chemicals, water, abrasion and ultraviolet radiation. Also, I paint the sides of the cradled panel with acrylic acid free, museum quality paint.
Cradled panels allow you to hang your work with no additional framing. The mediums I use for the LifeExpressions paintings are Liquitex Professional Acrylic Ink, Archival Ink, and/or Alcohol Ink. All inks are waterproof.
