Ever get stuck looking for gifts for a loved one? You can commission a custom painting of a childhood home or farm. I personally love painting barns, there is so much history and character to them, a portal to another place and time, an entire livelihood. I had a mentor when I first started painting that would paint barns and would often say that by painting them he felt like he was able to "breathe a new life into them". I agree with that, there is something about commemorating and celebrating something that has that much character and history to it.
The second picture is an example of the photo that was submitted for this commission, as you can see it wasn't of the highest quality, but was the best they had. And we made do, I am satisfied with the results and the owners are too.
