This portrait was commissioned by Mr Mario Piva, partner of the accounting firm Tenisci Piva here in Kamloops, as a Christmas gift for his wife Cindy. I come from a family of three boys so it was so much fun to be able to relate to the relationships showing through the reference photos. By all accounts the unveiling went very well, leaving Cindy speechless with the surprise.
This piece measures 24 inches by 12 inches on 1 1/2 inch deep canvas. It is painted using airbrushed acrylics and finished with hand detailing with a paintbrush.
