artwork melding energy and intensity with classical beauty, harmony, and balance
This is a commissioned work. The clients wanted a sensual image of a couple that showed a connection, had a relaxed feeling, and was appropriate for their grandchildren to see. Starting with their ideas and working with models, I came up with this large drawing for them. The snapshot shows me delivering the piece.
