Devin's Painting

Devin requested a painting a few months ago. It's the least I could do, after all he built me a tree house. I asked him what he wanted it to be and he left it up to me, no hints of what he had in mind. The only discussion about it was the size. He bought a 5'x 5' canvas and after it was stretched turned out to be 4'8" x 3'6".

I've been milling it over for a while and have had several ideas but nothing seemed right...and then one day it started coming together. I wanted something abstract and thought that was going to be the whole of it but then when things started piecing together I threw in some detail too. It's pretty much complete in my head but here's what I have so far.


  1. I'm loving it, can't wait to see the finished product!

  2. I like it! I like the color spacing of the books and the staircase.
