I asked her for some input on what kind of piece she was looking for. She told me something abstract, she gave me a color palette and suggested a cityscape among other things.
I have to say, I was a little…well, actual A LOT nervous to paint this for her gift. She is very particular. What if I didn't paint something she loved?? Could I master an abstract painting worthy of hanging above her couch?
Once I got started, I must say, I really enjoyed the process! I found painting in a VERY abstract style, freeing!
Here is what I did. The first is my background prep. The second is the finished piece.
I even added a "batman" building to mimic our Nashville skyline … I think she loved it.
