Commissioned Piece








This is the piece I finished last Friday. A friend commissioned me to do this for her husband, as they are celebrating their anniversary next month. The text is from one of his favorite hymns.

The background is a pale watercolor wash. The lettering was done with brown gouache and a pointed brush. The illustration was done with gouache, watercolors, and Prismacolor pencils.

The final size is 12" x 18".

Julie, I just had to tell you that when I saw this I cried. I absolutely LOVE it.

Linking to it this weekend.

Wow! It's a beautiful piece Julie. Your lettering dances (really like a couple of those "a"s!) and your illustration is terrific!!

It's just beautiful and that hymn is awesome- I tear up when I hear it which is not often!!
