This sweet violet painting was a commissioned piece. A customer requested a small painting to send to her friend because her three month old grandbaby passed away from SIDS. She was not able to go to the funeral as it was out of state and she wanted to send something personal and unique. She felt flowers would just get lost in the abundance of flowers and eventually they die. So she asked if I would paint a small canvas with Violets because the babies name was Violet Grace. I added layered hearts for the leaves and little pink rosebuds and a white butterfly.
I enjoy using gallery stretched canvases that have larger profiles (1 1/2 inches) for several reasons. 1. I like the stability of them. 2. If it’s a smaller picture sit easily on a shelf. 3. You don’t have the cost of framing them. 4. I like to paint the sides with a decoration.
A print of this can be purchased in my Etsy shop. It will be signed and have a matte included for $18.00 plus shipping. Or if you would like to have a small original made to give to a family instead of flowers there is an area on my Etsy shop where this can be ordered. It is under MEMORIALS. The cost is $65.00 plus shipping ($7.00) plus tax if you are in Indiana. Once I get an order from you I will send an email for more clarification about your order. The size would either be 5 X 7 or 6 X 6. The prints will always be titled with the love ones first and/or middle name. The original will be securely shipped by USPS in a box with bubble wrap and included will be an informational paper about the painting and about myself. When the painting is completed I send photos of it to get your feelings and verification that it is what you had in mind before I mail it. I thought that this customer had a very heartfelt idea and I wanted to extend it to others.
