as i reflect on the past year, i realize that i grew -
i grew a lot!
it must have been my biggest growth year ever in terms of all areas of my life. & i'm so thankful.
& i'm even more pumped for my plans for 2015 - because it's going to be my BIGGEST year ever!
but before we head into 2015, i wanted to share my top paintings of 2014.
in no particular order...
let's see if the red sox can win the world series again in 2015! i know i'll be cheering them on.
this painting was created specifically for a boston red sox fan. she wanted something special she could give to her husband. it was energizing to recreate this celebration. a feeling came over me as i felt like i was on the field with them. a rainbow of colors surfaced giving this painting a vivid quality. her husband almost fell over with excitement when i unveiled it for him. he proudly displays it in their home in gloucester, ma
if there's one word i could use to describe this original wedding painting, it would be passionate!
i'm honored to be partners with gsv capital & brandlift as they have brought my art to many new levels this year. they asked me to depict in vibrant color some of the leaders in education as they wanted to show their support and generosity by gifting them their paintings. and what you see above & below are a series of portraits that were exhibited at the phoenician in scotsdale, az during the 2014 asu+gsv summit and then given to these influential people. governor jeb bush received his portrait and commented how good he looked. that's the beauty you can do with the brush
laurene powell jobs graciously accepted her painting from gsv capital
coach lou holtz smiled bright when he was given his portrait
magic johnson loved his!
secretary penny pritzker appreciated the gift and contacted me to put in on public display at the u.s. department of commerce.
reed hastings was very thankful for the kind gesture by gsv capital
another wedding painting depicting this couple's first dance to a live reggae band. the name of the song - love you more. both were blown away by how accurately this painting recreated their special moment at their wedding. tears even flowed - it was monumental!
a favorite by so many fans from around the world. many fine art prints have been sent all over the world. i'm excited to also announce this painting is being sold on musical products worldwide. swenk, a signapore based company, expects an explosion of sales in 2015.
