Sometimes people see a painting that is already sold and ask me if I can paint one similar for them. Sometimes I can and sometimes I can't (or won't for various reasons).
I did this recently for a lovely couple from Arlington Va. While visiting Key West they saw a painting called Firebird. As a navy couple they had been stationed in Hawaii twice and remembered the bird of paradise flowers with fondness. They wanted a tangible reminder of their Hawaiian memories. Who could say no to that?
I was more than happy to paint Hawaiian Memories for them.
