"Spirit in the Sky (Beautiful Tammy)" was made in August of 2019 to honor the passing of a dear friend and life mentor of Laurie's, Tammy Cunningham of Denver, CO. Creating artwork that honors one's life allows those left behind to see and experience the loss in a healing and transformative manner.
This sweet Bear painting was created to honor the birth of my nephew, Gunnar Hofmann. This is the 5th painting commissioned by this special Pittsburgh, PA family. Each time a child was born, a painting was made to celebrate the birth and to accent the child's nursery. The couple also had a painting created to honor the site of their wedding in the Caribbean.
This painting was created as a surprise 50th anniversary gift for a lovely couple in Kohler, WI. Paintings can be made to honor or celebrate anyone for any occasion. Laurie works with the family to determine color palette, size, budget as well as the time lapse video. Selecting a song that holds special significance to the client allows one to see the entire metamorphosis of a painting / oftentimes mirroring metaphors for life events.
