I was asked to do a commission work on the style of my Painting Collages, using the following moodboard as inspiration and with total freedom on concept, theme, colors, etc.
Some images provided for inspiration
I was inspired mostly by the Mona Lisa portrait by Leonardo Da Vinci and by the top left artwork (author unknown) which I later discovered to be the cover of a book titled Buvard, by Julia Kerninon.
With the moodboard given, I wanted to create a portrait with a surreal/fantasy theme. It had to have some elements of nature and it had to have an intimate feeling.
After the work was completed, all that was missing was the requested dedication and my signature along with the year and the indication of this work to be a limited edition of one. Along with the work, a certificate of authenticity was made.
