Hi folks! (I'm still here!)
Here is a little acrylic painting I created for a customer's son who graduated from highschool. Apparently the saying "Love you to the moon and back" was something she used to tell her son as a child. What a perfect gift to give your child as he/she leaves home, don't you think? I was so touched by the sentiment that I just fell in love with the idea myself, (and the fact that the image came to life through my imagination and not from a photo for a change, it was truly refreshing! :-P) Here are the before and afters; the sketch that eventually led to the finished painting.
