A Value-Driven Painting Commission

A Value-Driven Painting Commission

How do you keep your values front and center in your life? Last month, a friend helping a local group of social workers review their core values approached me about creating a painting. During their brainstorming, the team brainstormed words and some images that helped them visualize their values. The group generated images of a child under a tree, an artist painting their future, and Rosie the Riveter. After seeing the image of the artist, my friend generously thought about my paintings and called me up, seeking a commission. She asked for a painting that incorporated the images and the words that the team had brainstormed together. It was a joy and a learning opportunity to do this painting for Katy! She plans to hang the artwork in her office and make prints that the other team members could view daily.
