A special gift

A special gift

Steve commissioned this piece as a gift for his wife Sarah whose favourite colour is red and favourite flower is frangipani’s. Steve wanted to capture his son Luca’s natural red hair and make this a strong element in the painting. He envisioned pops of colour. He gave me artistic freedom and trusted me to go with an abstract realism style.

In his own words:

“I commissioned Louisa to paint a portrait of my children as a surprise birthday gift for my wife. The entire process was seamless. I provided an image and let Louisa’s creative juices flow! She is exceptionally talented and we couldn’t have been happier with the end result. We have since made another purchase and look forward to working with her in the future.”
