In anticipation of summer and dreaming of Provence, I have painted a commissioned work of sunflowers and poppies.

This work required a color scheme I often do not paint in, so I mixed the colors exactly before beginning. This method helped produced a work that is a bit different from my normal portrait or landscape. The warmer palette was a joy to paint with and seemed to keep my insides warm while working!

Delivering the painting and getting it hung in just the right spot was fun. It did indeed match the new table and wall colors. I am honored that it will hang next to children’s art.

Comment from the new owner:

“I have been enjoying one of Pam’s paintings hanging in my living room for a couple of years now. After giving my kitchen and dining nook a “makeover,” I decided I needed a piece of art to finish it off and bring in some color, and I had something very specific in mind. I took my ideas to Pam. She was a joy to work with, and took my thoughts about a theme and color palette and interpreted it with her own touch of whimsy to deliver a painting that is really just perfect for the light and the space. I am so happy with it!”
