Olive Dreams of Paris

Some wonderful clients supported my desire to paint an unstretched canvas that hangs in folds like a curtain. This emphasizes the silver leaf in a more fun way that a flat surface. The request was for a painting of cherry blossom and the Eiffel Tower so I created an environment that looks like my client's dog, Olive, is dreaming of walking the streets of Paris in spring. This curtain will hang in a young girl's bedroom and she visited the studio several times to help me paint the piece.
