Along Came A Spider

16x12" oil on canvas, sold 

I find great joy in painting the people that collect my paintings. They already have an appreciation for my art and, other than a few little directives, they usually give me free reign. The best of all worlds. Take this guy, for instance. He and his wife own several of my pieces. In fact, so devoted are they, an entire room was repainted in their home to work with my paintings. He and his wife had seen my painting of Little Miss Muffett and loved it because he is a spider aficionado. So his lovely wife commissioned this portrait of Mr. Muffett for his birthday yesterday. Which is also her birthday. And their wedding anniversary! I hope the day was spectacular Donel and Robin and thanks for including my art in your celebration! I am honored.
