I had the privilege of creating a few more Legacy Paintings for clients and have thouroughly enjoyed seeing their love for the special person in their life come together with my vision to create a truly unique piece.  It is so exciting to work with someone and take what they see and feel about a person and put it into a visual representation!  The above painting, Legacy Tree for David, was a gift for a Dad.  In it I did my best to convey mascuinity with the honoring of family, including a special furry family member!  Here is a look behind the scenes at a few of my steps:

 First layer of background.

 The verse was a unique sentiment chosen for the recipient by my client.  The dog was created with watercolor and collaged onto the painting.

It was such a joy to create this unique piece for a special person in my client's life!  Stay tuned; I have a few more commissioned Legacy Tree paintings I did for other clients that I will be sharing here soon.

The holidays are shortly upon us and I am beginning to take on commissions for the season.  If you are looking for a unique gift for a special person in you life, consider the Legacy Tree!  Or if you have a different idea or theme in mind we can work together to bring it to life!  Contact me for more details if you are interested in a commissioned piece!  tatteredartstudio@gmail.com
