I don't normally do commissions; it's never as pleasurable as doing my own work, but recently I made an exception due to the open collaborative process the commissioner agreed to. They came to me with an idea for a painting based on the Greek myth of Persephone and then let me go to town.

Here is the rough sketch we agreed on.

While thinking about how to portray the myth I knew that I didn't want to paint to a Greek woman in robes being kidnapped by Hades, I wanted an image that was a bit more contemporary. (read about the myth here)

And here is the final painting: acrylic on canvas (24"x36")
