Oil painting for teenage study nook, Central Coast NSW.
This was a fun project.... I created a reproduction oil painting for a family home located on Central Coast NSW. The current owners are doing an upgrade to add their special touch to the home. Part of the new addition was including an original artwork for their teenage daughters room. I worked with these clients to create a piece that their daughter had seen whilst doing a school project researching works by Michelangelo and she absolutely said she must have that piece. It was "Hands of God and Adam," from The Creation of Adam, from the Sistine Ceiling, 1511. The image of the near-touching hands of God and Adam has become iconic of humanity. The painting has been reproduced in countless imitations and parodies. Michelangelo's Creation of Adam is one of the most replicated religious paintings of all time.
"Working with Glenda was a wonderful experience. I described what I wanted for my bedroom above my study desk and she created exactly what I had envisioned. She didn’t mind my input at all and the painting looks amazing, better than I could have imagined. I was absolutely thrilled with the result." ~ Taylor C.
My desire is that we bring the outside into our homes and work places so we can be continually inspired by its spirit.
It is my prayer that my paintings will connect with and encourage your heart as well, hopefully convey an authentic expression of love for the surrounds and share in the national spirit of Australia.
