Anne and flowers
I recently painted a series inspired by Anne of Green Gables. A buyer from out of state commissioned these after finding this very blog and seeing my previous work.
She has commissioned five additional compositions containing scenes from the book.
I painted the work twice. I am too appalled by the first one I made to show it to you. Let it be said that it is just horrible and I am glad I started over. Thankfully the other paintings started better than this one.

I am very happy with how the finished piece turned out and I am excited to be working on the rest of these paintings. I love this book so much, it makes me want to get the book out and get reading (when I should probably be painting!).
