Shirley's home, Langley B.C.

I met Shirley at the Abbotsford Farm & Country Market. We were both vendors and our booths were adjacent to each other’s. We got along quite well and she later contacted me to do a home portrait. A year or two later, I contacted her to do the flowers for my wedding, through her new flower business Flower Fort.

Shirley requested a winter scene, complete with a snowman in the front. She also wanted the soft colouring of a winter sunset. The whole scene turned out quite cozy, with the yellow of the house and outdoor lights on. I kept colour out of the trees in order to accent the sunset, so the trees are heavily sketched. This was an 11 x 14” commission.
