New Commission Painting!
“Passion” 60″x60” Acrylic Abstract Painting on Canvas
This painting was commissioned by local Calgary, Alberta, interior designer extraordinaire Monika S to celebrate her 29th wedding anniversary and she wanted it to be big, bold and beautiful! Monika has a passion for colour and creativity that she exudes in her life and through her work and she wanted this painting to be an expression of those qualities.
Monika first sent me this photo and explained that she has an open concept home and would like the artwork to be the focal point of the main living space. We decided on a 5ft x 5ft / 60″ x 60″ canvas to fill the space above her dining room hutch.
Design Tip: Big artwork makes a BIG statement in any room. Find a large painting you LOVE and it will turn the room from drab to fab, instantly!
She loved the colours and concept of one of my previous paintings “Lust” and wanted to use it as an inspiration for her custom painting.
Design Tip: Art doesn’t have to match your home! Choose artwork that you LOVE and allow the art to inspire your decor.
Fantastic works of art are likely going to be one of the biggest investments you will make in your home decor so you should connect with it in a big way, it should make you feel something, be an inspiration to you… after all you are going to be living with it for many, many years to come.
Choose art that you LOVE and NOT just because it matches your sofa!
(You can always buy a new sofa!)
And that’s just what Monika did! She changed a few things in her space that would really make the painting stand out, including moving some furniture around and painting an accent wall and island base to compliment the bold and vibrant colours in the painting.
While Monika was painting…so was I!
“Purple – ‘Passion’ – is the ultimate expression of a creative person’s world. This painting, with its myriad shades of purple and red hues nourishes and inspires the soul. I often like to pay a game with friends by having them guess how many paint swatches went into the piece. ” —Monika.S.
After several weeks of painting and over 4000 “marks” later, I happily delivered and installed Monika’s painting, “Passion” in her freshly painted home. It really changes the entire feel of the space – the large size and vibrant colours add vitality, energy and warmth to her home. Most importantly it expresses Monika’s personality and passion for life.
One special request that Monika had was to incorporate two hearts into the painting to symbolize her and her husband and celebrate their 29th wedding anniversary. They are small and subtle (see if you can spot them!) and it makes this custom painting all the more special to them!
P.S. Custom painting commissions are available and can be created in any size and any colour palette.
