A client commissioned this piece and asked me something I’ve never been asked before: if he could bring his family to watch me paint. He wanted to expand their horizons and get them off their phones. I loved the idea, but suggested we go one step further. I prepared the canvas, sketched the layout, outlined where each color will be, and told him and his family to start the piece for me kind of like a paint by numbers painting. I then added my detail and finished the work. They now have a beautiful painting and each one has bragging rights about the parts they helped create.
