Commission Painting—Pink Flowers and Mice for Sophie

Posted on March 24, 2016 by Saffron Craig | 0 comments

I was commissioned to do a painting for a little girls room. Which is every artists dream—Right!

The request for the commission was based around an existing painting of mine (which I have placed at the bottom of this post.)

We chose the size of the canvas to fit the room. Then with one simple request—please change the sky to pale pink or white. 

It took me a week to get the painting to a place where I loved it, layering and adding texture and colours. When it was nearly finished I suggested that I should add an animal. I decided on a mouse as Sophie has a pet mouse I thought that the mice might make Sophie happy! And it did. All the feed back has been positive it did make Sophie and her family happy. The painting is now the view in her bedroom. 

It's quite astonishing to me how much one painting can change a previously white walled bedroom.
