I sold my February commission. Fantastic to sell my work again and make my customer happy!
The commission like all commissioned paintings went through a number of drafts. The finial painting is of white light that journeys through a prism, creating a world of colour, circular dancing, and Arabic heritage hidden behind a Vaile.
If you too fancy a commission for your bedroom, sitting room, hell even your toilet, email me. I am happy to point my creative energy your way!
Patricia G’s testimony: “Here is my new painting I commissioned to Lica B Browne. Opposite to the first one I wanted an abstract painting. Lica can listen to me carefully in what I wanted and she got it straight away. She showed me the different steps of the painting and that I like it .She was very concerned on what I wanted. Thank you Lica”.
Second draft (below) – accepted.
Mixed media digital art on ArtRage (a realistic drawpaint-ing program); A3 framed.
First draft (dark) and Third draft (falling colour).
My first commission is complete. My patron is as happy as I. The painting is made up of a traditional Arabic Tunisian door, Toulouse’s university symbol (the squares), the Toulouse river (Garonne) and finally the colours of Toulouse (the Pink City). All hold personal meaning for my friend.
Tools and form: 60 x 80cm rough canvas. Mixed media on ArtRage.
It was remarked upon, that the middle white part looks like an Irish tower, so Ireland has also ‘unconsciously’ been included.
Patricia G’s testimony:
“This is the first painting, painted for me. My friend Lica B Browne did it. I asked her a few months ago to do something for me. To my surprise, she personalised it. The painting is made up of a traditional Arabic Tunisian door (my mum was born over there), and Toulouse’s symbols ( I was born there). The Toulouse river ( la Garonne), Toulouse’s university symbol ( the squares but also the famous Capitole square, and of course the colours which remind one of the famous colour of the town! ( The Pink City). She unconsciously added an Irish symbol ( the white round tower) which is a perfect wink for a tour guide as I am here in Ireland and my bonds to this country!! Just one word! HAPPY!”
