This was a piece I was asked to create for Christmas which happens to be for a very special person. These pieces which are filled with so much meaning can often be the most challenging but also the most rewarding. Each layer of paint and pattern is selected with a purpose and each feeds into the final painting and require specific hand-cut stencils to embody imagery that is important. As difficult as a piece like this can be to create, especially with the thought of the response of the recipient, as an artist it is also a very great pleasure.
