Custom Painting of French Country Estate

The other day I finished this custom oil painting of a country estate in La Tuiliere, France.

Looks like a nice place, huh?

The painting has now been shipped off to Colorado to an avid art collecting couple. The husband is going to surprise his wife with it (they vacationed there).

A Confession of Love and Proposal for Marriage through Fine Art

Will you marry me? That is the question that will be proposed when this painting is shown (along with a ring) to the surprise recipient – my client’s girlfriend and soon-to-be fiancee.

The idea was born 6 years ago, before he had met his girlfriend, when he was envisioning and dreaming of someone that would be his “saving angel” from his distressed past.

This vision is reflected in the painting – a reach to the sky and toward the one he loves, while breaking free from a tormenting connection to trouble, depicted through a chained connection to a representation of the devil.

Witnessing the moment are the bride-to-be’s sister, brother, mother and father, as well as the groom-to-be’s step-father, mother, sister, brother-in-law, and father.

I can’t believe this painting is now completed! I remember meeting my client a few months ago to talk about the idea and coming up with the initial sketches. It was definitely a challenge to align proportionally everyone in the painting, but the end result turned out beautifully.
