Summer House Painting Commissions

Painting people's homes is very rewarding a quite a unique artistic challenge. The personality of the occupants has to be evident in the painting. I use lighting carefully to highlight my focal point in the painting and also spend more time there creating small detail. The peripheries of the painting generally have less contrast, detail and less sharp edges to really focus the viewers attention where I want it. In the case of these two works, the porch/ patio areas are the star attraction with pops of color of the flower beds and long shadows leading your eye in.
