A Commission to Celebrate

Commission for Mel, Brenden and Harper

In 17 more sleeps this fine looking pair will be getting married! They wanted a casual family portrait to have on display at their wedding; a rustic, country, vintage wedding.

Along with their beautiful little girl and their beloved dog, I placed them on the creek which runs through their wedding venue, set the backdrop to the one they will see from their wedding location, and wrapped them in a vintage doily, (like the ones they plan to have there).

Wishing them the most splendid day, and magical life beyond!

A Broken Hill Wedding

Friday, June 29th, 2012

One of the things I love most about doing personal commissions is getting the feedback at the end. It’s always a nervous wait for me, not knowing if they will like it or not.

When I love something I gush, leaving no uncertainty as to how I feel. There it is people, I’m a gusher. So when I come across others who gush it MAKES MY DAY!

Now, rewind to the beginning of the story…

Recently I was asked by a kind young lady to paint a commission as a gift for her very dear friends. It was to be a scene of their recent wedding at Broken Hill, and was to include animals they identify with, their pets, and something to represent the future of their happy marriage.

Inspired by the arid setting and all the details, I set to work…

And soon I was done!

She was thrilled with the outcome. Then she gave it to her friends and they loved it too. So this time I got two sets of feedback! THEN, they posted a pic of it on their Facebook, so it got even more nice feedback!!! All gushing with such kind words, my days were made for MONTHS! 🙂

Endless thank-you’s to Megan, Regan and Chris.

Family Portrait Commission

Monday, March 19th, 2012

A few months back I did a commission for a very musical family. Craig and Elke were about to be married after having been together for years and years, and wanted something special to mark this time in their lives together (along with their gorgeous daughter and beloved pooch).

Craig had proposed to Elke by taking her for a walk on the beach and letting her find a message in a bottle he had planted there earlier. A-MAZ-ING!

I included lots of instruments and musical elements in the painting too, to represent the passion they have for their band “Pachooka“. The picture was to be printed on beer coolers for their wedding. Hope it was unforgettable guys.

Wedding Invitation commission

Recently I was commissioned by a lovely couple from Victoria, to paint a commission of them (to be) on their wedding day, and turn it into wedding invitations. I painted the picture for the front (which they get to keep), designed the inside of the cards, and created thank-you cards for them too.

I hope they and their guests love them, and I wish them both a gorgeous wedding day and marriage!

The Wedding Show

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

This weekend we attended to the wedding of some friends. The groom is a cartoonist and the wedding was held in a gallery. Instead of wedding gifts they asked each guest to create a cartoon or illustration to hang in the gallery for their wedding.

The gallery, in turn, is holding an exhibition of them all, not just for one night, but for the next few weeks. There were over 60 works, and they were amazing!

Cary’s Commission

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

Cary's commission, by flossy-pDuring September I worked on a commissioned portrait for a lady that I didn’t get to meet. Luckily I was sent some great photos that showed the close bond between herself and her daughter.

They have matching tattoos, and the strength of their relationship was very clear. I’m hoping that even though I didn’t get to know them, I still managed to capture their connection.
