I was commissioned to create a triptych as a wedding gift for Derek and Lauren. I was given a loose idea by the patron for an idea that she had. She told me that they met at UCSD and now they live in San Francisco. She wanted a kind of- beginning, present and future thing. We talked about it, she sent me some pictures of them and I came up with a composition that I thought would work.
This was done in pencil. These were 4x4" squares. I then inked them in and began to paint them with watercolors.
some in progress works.
I then added finishing touches and was finished with the individual pieces.
The patron wanted an all white frame. So I painted the frame white. I cut a white mat with 3 beveled openings. I positioned them, mounted them and cleaned it up!
The finished product! I was happy to work on a meaningful gift for a momentous occasion. -Terry
