Born Again - Portrait of Jennifer
Oil on Canvas - 47" x 31" - 1996


This painting was commissioned by Jennifer's husband, a good friend and collector of mine, to symbolically portray some of the important events of her life. The clients had a vague idea of what they were looking for, and I was able to make some suggestions that really clarified for them what they wanted to see. It's pretty close the the "Full Treatment": a complete landscape background with archtectural elements (invented from imagination), an additional figure (from a photo provided by the client, although I think I had to invent the bundle of roses she is holding), and a special costume (also invented from imagination) for the portrait subject. It's quite a bit of work; to design all the special elements and paint this rather large painting took about 2 months.

Approximate Price:

36" x 24" - US$ 5000
42" x 28" - US$ 7000
48" x 32" - US$ 9000
