“Waves of Love” oil on canvas by Sara Sherwood
I enjoy painting skylines of any city on commission. I have been doing so professionally for 11 years, since I became a full time artist in 2005. I listen to see what the favourite paintings are and generally I can see a style commonality. It might be the way I have #painted reflections or sky or lots of white space or lots of texture. I then discuss colours and feel of a work of art as well as the landmarks or abstract nature. I have all I need to create. I do not do preliminary sketches I just paint. This way my art stays free.
“Sara, we just wanted to say how absolutely over the moon we are with our painting! It is perfect, exactly what we had hoped for! We have dreamt of owning a piece of your work for so long that now it is hanging in our room we just cant stop looking at it! I cant think of any better way we could’ve used the money we received as wedding gifts -it is such a special piece and we will forever treasure it and all the happy memories it holds.
We feel very lucky to have met you. You made the whole process of commissioning a piece so personal and your desire to “do the best possible painting for us” shone through. So thank you- thank you for all the years we have ahead of us enjoying your painting and thank you for creating new dreams as we start to save for our next piece!!
I think- it was so lovely to watch our painting grow and evolve – even hung on the wall now we keep noticing new things about it, we just love it.”
