The Story Behind the Printed Image
A few weeks before his 5th birthday, my son Ethan came down to my art studio. He was looking around at the newly prepped substrates for future paintings. Then he picked one up, looked up, pointed to a large night sky painting hanging on the wall and said "Paint me something like that on this board, please." I chuckled at his request, well it was more of a demand, I think. I thought to myself, sweetie but mommy doesn't take commissions lol But for him, of course I was going to make an exception =) I took the board and said that I'll have it ready for his upcoming birthday. And he said GOOD, but this one will NOT be available.
I coulnd't believe how cleaver he was but I was also honored that he wanted me to make him something special <3 After I shared the process of this painting coming alive and then the final images of it, a lot of folks responded with the sweetest birthday wishes for Ethans, sending him good cheers from near and far. Some folks told me that its their favorite painting that I've created thus far. I will guess that that is because I put a lot of love into it and worked to add extra magic and beauty for him, hoping that he'll always enjoy his painting as he grows into a young man who will hopefully keep loving nature and the outdoors as much as he does today.
