A Re-creation of Recreation

 I recently had a customer to send me this photo and ask if I could paint a re-creation of it for her husband. I don’t normally do many landscapes or people, but how could I say no? This photo is beautiful and it was a piece that would be very meaningful to her husband! Of course I said yes! 
These next few photos show the progress of the painting….
And here is the finished piece.
These are the types of order that I really love creating. Both husband and wife are very happy with the piece and here’s what they had to say….
Husband: “Amanda I love this painting!! My wife snapped this picture one evening while we were fishing. Your talent amazes me; you captured not only the beauty of the moment but also the spirit of this moment! Thanks again!”
Wife: “You captured that moment perfectly for my husband!!! Amazing!!!”
Mission accomplished 🙂
