What Dreams May Come by AnnMarieBone What Dreams May Come by AnnMarieBone
I was so sorry to hear the sad news about the death of Robin Williams who starred in this film that is the subject of so many of my commissions.  I am old enough to have been a fan of "Mork and Mindy" from the 1970s and I have always enjoyed his comedy and more serious roles since then.  He will be sadly missed.

Acrylic on Deep Edge Canvas 40x30 inches

This is a commission that I have just completed for a lovely young man from the USA. It is a surprise present for his wife, who loves the film "What Dreams May Come".

I worked from various stills of the film to try and recreate the image that was required.

The couple in the painting are him and his wife and she is carrying her favourite flowers, Calla lilies. It was wonderful to work on such a romantic gift.

"This was for me and it is BEYOND perfect. I can even express how amazing this gift is. I can't stop staring at it! You did so amazing - thank you SO SO much!"
(Message received when the gift was given.)

"As you can tell, we received the painting and my wife absolutely loves it. She said it was the best gift anyone had ever got her and that nothing would be able to top it. I'll be sure to send you a picture of it hanging once we do so. We are still trying to decide where we want it because my wife wants to put it in a place that she can look at it all the time.

I just wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did with the painting. It turned out better than I could have imagined at the start and I am extremely happy that I found you and was able to have this work commissioned. It was a pleasure working with you and you made my first commission a very enjoyable process."

It really is absolutely gorgeous, and ever since I saw that film, I have longed to find somewhere a print of that original scene, or the painting they used. Your rendition of it, however, is probably as good as I might ever hope to see. It's beautiful... It really is. And well done to the lad who got it commissioned by you - a lovely sentiment.

For some reason, my husband *hates* that film. I love it. For him he sees misery, for me I see a happy ending. I don't know why!

:painter:  Thank you!  It does seem to be a very popular film judging by the number of enquiries I get about commissions like this!  :airborne:

I really like this as it seems to be a dream all by itself! I especially love the blue violet and purple themes you put throughout the picture, especially on the tree.
The array of flowers again is wonderful with the variety of color used and I love how you can see some sun rays on the painting too. Finally, I love the gradual waterfalls as they look like little stair steps going up, but in the opposite direction with water instead.
Wonderful job!
