A Sanctuary of Calm

Kroma paint on stretched canvas by Raven
He had an idea for a surprise gift for his wife. Their favorite spot. It was a collaboration of his photos and description of their home away from home that provided the inspiration.
Do you have an idea for a painting? Let me know.
Let’s talk about it.
We will discuss different options.
When we agree on a direction, the adventure begins.
Step 1. We discuss what you have in mind. I need to know as much as I can about the image you hold in your imagination.
Step 2. We decide on a schedule, size and price that is agreeable to both of us.
Step 3. I cook on your ideas in the studio and get back to you with my plan to make sure it is on the right track.
Step 4. The painting begins.
Step 5. You and I review it together. By email if that is the most convenient for you.
Step 6. Painting is finalized and you can choose to receive it with access to a video that shows the painting process. Voila!
