From Turmoil Comes Calm – Commissioned Artwork

Date of Project Completion: Dec 2016

This Commissioned work was a delight to complete.  Following a charity event where I was auctioning my services, I found myself working with a fabulous couple.  Their home was in the process of being renovated, and the brief for their artwork was very clear.  They wanted a statement piece that provided an uplifting, yet calm energy.  The artwork is to be hung in their lounge room.

The wall that we were hanging the original artwork on could be seen from the kitchen and dining areas also, so this piece was a prominent feature in the home. The primary colour pallet of the home was grey and white.  The colours that came through with their artwork and accessories are blues, pinks and whites.

Following our consultation, it was confirmed that for this artwork, the colour pallet was to be bright but still in line with their current decor.  On reflecting on our conversation, I made the decision to paint in two tones of blue, white and with a feature of deep pink and yellow.

The combined energy of these colours is very strong.  Blue continues to provide the nurturing and trusted energy essential in their family home.  Using this as a base also ensures the calm, strong, stable platform that was desired by my client.  The pink is feminine in energy and infuses a feeling of unconditional love.  The addition if yellow provided a spark of happiness – cheerful, inspiring and easy going energy.

The retail cost of this project would have been $2,864.00 plus GST.

A great, fun experience.  Loved creating this energetic piece for my client.
