My Largest Painting to Date

A dear friend of mine asked me if I could create a special painting for her. She was redecorating her living room and wanted a painting representative of the Texas Hill Country. Up until now, my largest painting had been an 18x24 of a hill country scene that sold on Daily Paintworks last year. Since she wanted something larger, I was a little nervous. We talked about what she had in mind and she even picked a couple of paintings from my website that she liked, so I'd have an idea of where to start. I took those two paintings and did an 8x10 study combining elements of both into the one. After some discussion and some adjusting we decided to move forward with a 30x40 canvas. It took me most of last week but I think I'm done. She said she likes it and we've arranged for delivery in April when we will both be in Galveston.
