All My Love's
30" x 40" Personal Oil Painting on Canvas
30" x 40 " Red Floater Frame
The Collectors Inspiration
I've wanted to have something personal done of my dog, Jax, and me for sometime, but I've struggled wondering, what would it look like? What size would I get?
Then I saw an ad from Henri Bendel (below) and was kind of obsessed. I would love something like that (not that exactly), but more personal... I would want something that reflects my personality and experiences. I know I'd like it to be black and white, but with some red...
I was thinking of something to represent the three major places I've lived for the frames (if possible): Pennsylvania, Louisiana, and Texas. Each place has had something to do with significant phases of my life/career. PA - I was born and raised; it is where my family and friends are; LA
I will be sure to send multiple photos of us! His name is Jax - he is a Labrador/Weimaraner mix! Even though he is a rescue, he really rescued me. I got him right before my car accident when I broke my neck. He would check on me, tuck me in, and stayed by my side. He's just been an amazing source of comfort, especially after my sudden relocation to Houston, TX. He's a big baby, but he still tucks me in every night lol. He also has a blanket that he carries around with him from room to room. He really is my best friend. He loves everyone and every animal. He is just a sweetheart.
He has taught me so much about unconditional love and trust.
With great photos and lots of input about all her loves and favorite things from Kaylynn, I had not problem at all designing his piece for her. Here is her response after I emailed her the finals.
MADISON!!It is so AMAZING!!! You are such an incredible person and artist!!! I just LOVE everything - every single detail!! I can't believe how perfect and beautiful this is -- I knew it would be fantastic, but I am just blown away!!It looks just like Jax and me!!I had to show my close friend at work! She is in love with it too! She was like "it's everything you love in one painting!" You really understand me!!I am so excited and near tears! Thank you so so so so much!!!!!!
