This painting was another commission that came from my Bath Group Exhibition in May at the Bath Gallery.
All Bar One & Starbucks(Moonlight Effect)Bath, 20" x 16", oil on canvas, 2011
Two lovely ladies had a look at some of paintings from my Bath Marathon and found out that I didn't do any of All Bar One! They said, "How could you not do one of All Bar One?" I said, "I'm sorry I missed it out but you can commission me to do one for you!"
They had a good think about it, talked about the size and price with The Bath Gallery and the deal was done. That night they took me to All Bar one and said, we want a bit of the Abbey, Starbucks and it should have a moonlight effect. I took loads of pictures and came back to paint it in London. After a few weeks work I sent them a copy via email and this is the exact reply I got, "Thank you so much for the wonderful painting you made for us. You have created a beautiful response to our brief and we are delighted. All being well I plan to collect the painting today. Many thanks again.

It's always great to get a pleased client after a commission!
