The client who commissioned this piece says that no matter what is happening in their home, there is always music playing. His children play instruments (violin and cello) and music is a huge part of who they are and how they inhabit their home. This piece is called "Where the Cool Grass Grows" and measures 36 x 36 inches.
Here are some detail shots:
The title "Where the Cool Grass Grows", pays homage to Ferdinand the Bull, who wanted to sit in the cool grass, just quietly, and smell the flowers. Munro Leaf's book Ferdinand the Bull is special to my clients, so I laced some text from the book into the upper right and left hand corners of the painting. Isn't it fun to hide something special in the background?
