Engagement At Haystack Rock

I recently received a wonderful request: to commemorate a memorable moment for a couple, which would be given as a birthday gift. I've no familiarity with this spectacular scene, "Haystack Rock" in Cannon Beach, Oregon, but I learned quickly!
The request was to create a painting in the style of my pen and ink renditions of many New York City scenes - Brooklyn Bridge, Guggenheim, CBGB's, Central Park Vendor, Chrysler Building.

My customer was pleased and sent me this photo of the framed painting - thank you!

Inspired Inspiration

         
These two MetroCard paintings served as inspiration for two commissioned pieces -- same subject, but on larger 8"x10" cradled wood panels. Success!

First steps of the pigeon...





Decided to make it a bit larger on the 8"x10" panel.




Gleam in his eye.




Coffee cup  - it's our pleasure to serve you!




Finals.
