development – gigi’s painting: the lavender road


It’s interesting to watch a painting unfold.  Here is gigi’s lavender road last night when I left for girl’s night out.


I’m not sure if it’s done.  The designer and I will have to look at it a while…

I’m discovering that commissions are more difficult.  Perhaps it is the desire to manifest another’s vision, or maybe it is the hope that it will be enjoyed.  Either way, I like letting the brushes do their thing and having someone fall in love with it. 


These two close-ups are my favorite parts of the painting.  I usually have a vignette or two that I really enjoy…here I believe it is the trunk of the tree. 


There’s something magical about power lines…I know, I’m crazy!

Well, Gigi will be here in a half hour, so I best jump in the shower while the grower is napping!

  1. I love the painting! Power lines are aswsome! They give a great depth of feild look and feeling. I might ask you to paint one of the photos I take. What would charge for it? : )

    • It’s funny, the one thing that the designer and i both wish is that we would have taken art in high school…that it would have helped us so much in architecture school, made us better designers. Sometimes I think instead of hanging out in the CAD lab, I should have been in art with Matt! 🙂

  2. I’m coming over from Mormon Mommy Blogs, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled “Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me.” The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I’m hoping to meet. The voting ends Sunday evening. I am ahead for now but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere and I would so, so, appreciate your help. Her blog is and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. “Grapejuice, Floaties” Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you’re awesome! ♥♥
