22-Fillmore

A while back I sold my 5-Fulton painting and was totally stoked on it. Recently, friends of the couple who bought that painting saw it and inquired about making a painting in the same vein. The story is pretty endearing, so I hope if you're reading this, you don't mind me sharing.

They have a 20 month old son who loves buses. Every time he sees a bus, he yells out "Bus! Bus!" In later conversations, I found out that his favorite part of the day is when he walks to daycare and can see the buses go by. The couple also just celebrated their 4 year anniversary, and instead of going out for a big evening, they commissioned me to do a painting that would remind them of this time and their young son.

Here's my new painting for them. Its called 22-Fillmore because thats the line that they see when they walk to daycare. The scene is located, hopefully, towards the end of their little commute and I hope it will remind them of the city when they leave.

Wow what a treasure ~ this night scene really brings out the "Bus! Bus!" I bet the little one is very joyful as well as the parents ~ you did a terrific job and thanks for sharing the background of this painting ~ very endearing.

We don't mind. We love the painting and glad our son inspired such a great piece of art that will pass through our family for generations to come.
