Renee Long commissioned me to do this piece of Renee and her sisters as a gift for her mother. The original photo was taken of the girls on a trip to Disney. Renee shared with me that this was a moment of silliness for the girls. Since Renee lives in West Palm and her sisters live in California while their mother lives in New Jersey, Renee wanted to give a sentimental and reminiscent gift to her mother. I was excited to use watercolor to play with the lighting in the photo as well as use brighter colors to reflect the playfulness of the girls.
