Valerie's Place

A collector of mine wanted a personal painting for her mother-in- law as a thank you for all the generous things she had given to her over the years.

Mollie asked if I could create a piece based on elements from Valerie's magnificent country house. She provided me with about 80 digital shots of the rooms of the house and Valerie's extensive folk art collection. The painting is a distillation of the highlights of her home: her chair in the livingroom is central to the composition, the mermaid sculpture, owls, her favorite music on the piano, the blocks on the floor are the initials of her 8 grandchildren, the 3 hummingbirds above the sunflowers represent her 3 daughters- in-law who she took to Paris, etc.
