This piece will probably always be one of my most sentimental commissions I have ever completed. Created for Lawrence Quinlivan who had a love for the arts. Larry and I met at my very first art show. He bought a few of my small pieces and later, him and his wife, Joan, came to my home and commissioned a piece from me. Larry loved the form of a woman, as do I, and wanted me to create a sensual woman with long hair and deliver it to him on the 1 year anniversary of our first meeting. However, very sadly 1 week prior to the show I received an email from his daughter explaining that Larry passed away a few days earlier. They invited me to his celebration of life where I delivered his piece to his wife. The piece I created was actually one of my wife that I was not planning on selling, however, Larry had expressed a love for that piece and I felt that it was meant for him. I will never forget Larry and Joan and they will always have a special place in my heart.
