Art Commission

This is actually two projects commissioned for a young lady’s bedroom..One is the poster in the middle and one is an actual painting on the wall.

I talked with both mom and the young woman and made a list of what they wanted.

I made a sketch:

We did a photo shoot.
I decide to use the young lady as the model for the painting.

This is a picture I took a while back. I liked the trees in the background so I cropped it and tinted it blue.

This is her cat she wanted to have in the painting.

The painting on the wall.

All together.


  1. Oh my gosh, Deirdra! This is absolutely AMAZING!!! When can you come over and paint my bedroom??? (Just kidding. Maybe if I move someday, though, I'll hire you, too!)

  2. Deirdra,
    This is a very fun project. You do such nice work.

  3. How beautiful--and to get to see the creative process that went into it. You are so talented!

  4. Wow, you're such a talented artist! It
    so interesting to see the steps you went through as your planned it out too. I'm lucky to draw stick figures!

  5. Oh my gosh, that is so totally cute! What a lucky young lady, to have that painted on her wall. You did a wonderful job, and it's so cool that you used the young lady as the model for the painting.

  6. Did you use acrylics? You so rock! I <3 it! :)
