Well the jury is still deliberating on the title question, but it was a healthy challenge and a lot of fun. While it is still more in 'my style' of work, it is not my usual fare. It also has a sentimental value to my family, which makes this more of a personal treasure. My client is my sis-in-law who, along with my husband, was born in this area - Sidmouth, Devon, England. They spent many summers traveling back 'home'. She and the in-laws had just spent a couple weeks there when she decided she'd like a painting commemorating her trip and background. I used some personal touches specific to her in the work. Below are pictorial insights in the making of this piece. Please, feel free to leave a comment below and let me know what you think.
