And another new commission

(Private Commission). ‘October Evening. Isle of Iona’. Mixed media on 7×7″ wood. Rose Strang 2019

This commission was for a friend from Stoke-on-Trent who wanted something for her partner’s birthday. The buyer wanted something that spoke of October light, she’d liked my previous paintings of the Isle of Iona from Autumn last year. Her partner was someone I’d worked with on a hospital arts project in 2007 and it was a pleasure to create this painting for him as he’d been a great guy to work with!

Below, my other recent commission for a friend in the US, you can read more about that Here

A new commission

(Private commission). ‘Ardban Light’. Mixed media on 23×16 inch wood panel. Rose Strang 2019

Above – a private commission for a friend from the US, who kindly commissioned me after seeing some of my paintings. It’s now winging its way to its new home! The buyer of the painting will also use this image for a CD cover featuring his and others music, which I’ll post more about here once he’s received the painting and goes ahead with that!

The theme was dawn rising after a long night – a sense of hope. I based it on my paintings of Ardban earlier this year, hence the painting title- ‘Ardban Light’.

If you’re interested in commissioning paintings, here’s a previous post I wrote about commissions – Link to commissioned paintings. If the subject inspires me I’m happy to take on a new commission, time allowing.

I’ll soon be posting updates on painting progress for a little series I’m creating called Winter Miniatures. The exhibition will feature semi-abstract winter colours in mixed media on 3×3″ wood blocks. More info on the upcoming exhibition at my studio, which launches 8th December 2019 Here
