I have finished a very fun commission project for a fabulous woman who ordered this painting for her lovely husband's 40th birthday.

To start off my inspiration and to add a very personal element to the painting, their three kids, 9, 7 and 3 years old, were taking part in the creative process. I invited them over for a couple of hours play with paint, both on separate paper but also on the actual canvas, as one of the first layers.

Their marks and imagery as well as the hubby's favourite song, "You Raise Me Up"  by Josh Groban, kicked off the inspiration for the painting and guided me through the process. A flower that one of the kids painted and the word Eternity from the song set the framework for the painting. 

It was for sure a challenging and very fun project and I loved every bit of it. Have a look at the photos:-)
 


"You Raise Me Up" - JOSH GROBAN

When I am down and, oh, my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up to more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up to more than I can be.

There is no life - no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up to more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up to more than I can be.

You raise me up to more than I can be.
