Figs & Antique Wooden Blocks "Luca is Love Times Three" oil painting

"Luca is Love Times Three"
12x9 inches / oil on panel
SOLD
Here is my second commissioned painting of this subject. from another young couple who have been blessed with a precious baby boy! They planted a fig tree together outside their door when they first met, and now with their first child named Luca, requested a painting of blocks and three little figs which I designed, “Luca is Love Times Three”. You may recall that last year I’d received a commission for a painting of a single fig and wooden blocks which carried a lot of symbolism for that first couple as well, since their baby boy named Aaron, was knicknamed “Fig” thus my painting with a play on words, “Aaron, We Love You”.

Thank you SO much, Anyes! This was the second of such a subject and equally enjoyable to create something fun with the block images. Quite coincidental that two young couples with their first child requested such similar paintings! :o)

Jeanne - My husband surprised me with this beautiful painting for my first mother's day 2 years ago. Needless to say, I was speechless, completely captured by his thoughtfulness and your ability to conceptualize our love for Luca. Thank you for sharing your talents with us - to this day the painting brightens my soul. Our second son has since been born...we're busy dreaming up a theme to depict the spirit with which he completes us. We will be in touch.
