I did a painting for a friend...
No, for two friends that will become three soon!
It's a painting for Alice, to say the true, though I don't know her yet.
But I know that she will be a piece of P. and a piece of F. and I hope
that this painting in her room could help her to fly with the fancy,
during the day or in the night, when the little creatures on the tree
will come out from the drawing and they will dance gently over
her cot and into her dreams.......
..and Alice could climb on the branches of this magic tree and over
its top, and more, until she will grow up.
Or, if she will wish it, for all her life!
I did this painting for a birthday. The husband of L. wrote me an e-mail, telling me that he would like to do a surprise to L. So I prepared an e-greeting card where I said her that there would be a special gift for her birthday. ..she was very happy!
Then she thought about it, to the subject and the size of the painting, until she was ready to tell me about her wish... She told me different things, and in the end she told me a story, the story of her love, and when her husband asked her to marry. This painting is sprout out from the love story. She told me some details that began to turning in my head untill I drawn some sketches. She choosed one of these and my idea about the colours and now the painting is ready!
The size is rather big and I didn't take a good picture of the whole panel yet.
I did only photographs of some details (in the previous post).
So it will be a surprise, when she will see the painting, between few days...
...a good surprise, I hope !
