Luv x 2
As portraits are sketched, put on paper and finally painted some are realistic, whimsical or even jovial in nature.
This recent portrait is one of a friends dynamic duo of pugs respectively Adho and Shanti.
Adho refers to the yoga move of downward - facing dog and Shanti from sanskrit means peace, rest, calmness, tranquility or bliss.
Quite a lovely pair, recently accompanying me as I renovated and designed a kitchen redeux.
Part of the breakfast nook, love the combination of concrete custom finished wall, plush leather bench seating cushions,modern table, ghost chairs (Louis..) ans a touch of urban lofty feel in the rustic finishes against sleeker modern touches.
Yes, the homeowner is a Yoga enthusiast as the painting suggests.
In progress, the concrete wall is one coated.....
This custom finish is one of my own, creating an urban lofty feel to the kitchen.
I love the buttery leather on the cushions.
The concrete wall in progress, adds another textural dimension to the kitchen.
Cabinetry was also painted out in black high glossy finish.
You can change the look and feel of a room with a little imagination and creative thinking, sometimes an entire redeux is not necessary.
