I can't even believe I forgot to photograph this when it was finished. This was a commission that was due about two months ago and I finally dropped it off December 23rd. AND to top it all off I forgot to photograph the finished piece!
It was a crazy day... I was also dropping off my 24x48 inch commission of the Provincetown Pier - yup, forgot to take that photo, too.... And I had on the first new coat I've had in FIFTEEN years, and guess what - it was WHITE. And I got blue 'sky' all over the right side and arm. The coat wasn't even 2 weeks old!
My buddy Nancy Colella was right - crazy for an artist to buy a white coat!
Anyway, THIS painting was so fun to do - it was a loving gift from a wife to her husband, and it had his favorite 'pizza' food - Pepe's Pizza from New Haven, CT (if you haven't gone, it's worth the ride, believe me), and Faxon Park Soda (also a New Haven treat) and clam-shaped Italian pastries - which can be purchased within walking distance of Pepe's.
My husband and I took a drive there and had a wonderful lunch - and got the soda and pastries.
I got an email yesterday saying the recipient loved it, and there he is, on Facebook, with the Pepe's baseball cap on, holding the pizza painting, which was in a pizza box.
Made my day...
I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday!Pin It
