Finished Commissioned Triptych

The week has come to an end and I have finished this guy up! The parameters for this commission weren’t too restrictive, which allowed me to put a lot of my style into it. There were really only two items I needed to keep in mind on this project:

1. The client has a red couch so didn’t want too much red in the final piece.

2. She also didn’t want anything real masculine

In making this work, I aimed for the atmospheric background to have as much of an impact as the foliage. This meant keeping the foliage pretty simple. The red leaves against the background have grown on me and overall and I think the greens in the work will be a great contrast to her red couch. I’m quite pleased with the finished piece – I hope the new owner will be as well!

  1. Nice work. Makes me think I should try something like this photographically. A somewhat minimalist color nature shot, three portrait 3:2 photos. Shallow depth of field to get a blurred out background…

  2. It will take a while. One of my photos, a reflection off a dock in Palermo, was used (with permission) as the basis for an encaustic work. It will take me a while to find something suitable.

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to post them here.
