The painter, the artist had that quizzical look on his face. He would have rather I told him what I'd like him to paint. But honestly, I also had no idea. Since he is familiar with the blog, he must have some concept of CC somewhere.
He told me through the networks that he has been a raider. And while looking at his instagram photos, I found out that he paints as a hobby. I got excited with what I saw. I asked him if he accepts 'commissioned work.' And for how much.
He was so kind not to charge me anything for painting. "Just buy the materials I would need" was his kind instruction.
He blogs, too. And he posts some of his sketches there (well, during the early days of his blog). But now I see him more in Instagram. He is quite a looker, and his photos prove it. No wonder he has tons of followers :)
And in person, the looks don't disappoint. We went to National Bookstore to buy the materials. I told him what color scheme best fits my humble abode. He picked the range of paints to be used.
After a few weeks, I finally got my painting. And I am just blown away.
The painting now adorns my living/dining area. Though pc thinks it should occupy the study area. The colors are vivid. The brush strokes heavy. He calls it "Corners".
This is the detail of one corner:
And the other:
What do you think is he communicating about CC through his painting?
