One Path....

This past Spring, I was commissioned to create two pieces for the Orange County California Courthouse. My art would be hung in the Marriage Room… the room were civil ceremonies are performed to marry couples.

I was asked to create two pieces with the theme of Love and Marriage and Orange County.

This is the progression of my first piece…
my original sketch....

I adhere all of my background papers....old maps of orange county, fruit crate labels, travel brochures, textured papers...

next I paint in the background color...I wanted to pick up the colors in the carpet in the room...
then I add in the "path" in hearts....
addition of black accents...
The piece is finished with words and additional accents...
I will share the second piece in another post....

Even though this piece is specific to Orange County, Prints and Giclees are available. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to discuss a commission to fit your particular needs....
