I had the honor of being commissioned for a painting by a father who wanted art for his daughter’s room with a sentiment to keep in her heart. The message he wanted to impart was that when life gets overwhelming, she should “let it go and just enjoy the show,” to quote the Lenka song that inspired him.

I decided to paint it in the style of a children’s book illustration and use a circus for the theme.

I loved the chance to paint in this playful style and was so touched to be involved in this thoughtful gift from a dad to his wife and daughter.
