I met Annie at Indie Wed last year where she fell in love with my work and continued to support me throughout the year by attending FORM. A year after originally finding me, she booked a painting of her colorful bouquet. She was married this January in Orlando, Florida under sunny skies.
There are so many fun textures and color variation in this bouquet. After much deliberation, Annie and David chose one of my favorite compositions:
This is going to be an awesome 20 x 20 inch painting. You know that you can always follow my progress on Instagram with Loreen_rose. I'm usually a couple steps ahead on this site (hint hint, the painting is coming along beautifully).
Finally, one more shout out to the Blackhawks and the good life. I went to the Art Institute of Chicago yesterday morning with a good friend. What a wonderful way to start out the day being inspired by old masters. I highly encourage everyone to see the current exhibit, "Impressionism, Fashion & Modernity". It was so excellent, and I'm still feeling the inspirational itch...I must go paint! Ending the day with a Stanley Cup win...couldn't ask for a better day. Let's ride this celebratory wave! Go Hawks!
