A Painting in Rewind

Commission from beginning to end! I don't really love showing every step, because, let's face it, it looks pretty horrible in the beginning. So this is for you Esther! ha:) I'm learning that painting takes faith that something beautiful is going to emerge from all those layers of underpainting. I also met an artist in Penticton, Grace Shaw, who said, 'When I paint, I just take a deep breath and go for it!'. I love that! You can't over think it; you just have to go where it leads you. 

Done for lovely, lovely friends out in California, the Ebners! Based on a photograph taken by their  talented photographer son, Jeff ( check out his blog here!).


  1. Dah! I LOVE it! I didn't know it was for the Ebners! They will love it too! You are so talented!!!!!!!!!! Miss you like CRAZY!

  2. Gorgeous!!! I may have to order me one of those too. :-) Love Leah's trees!
