A very particular commission for a very particular lady.  The most interesting commissions involve personal storylines, whether from the past, or the present.  The models for these pieces represent a decade perhaps unique in outlook, as the economy seemed to know no limits, and events such as 9/11 were out in the distant future.  The 80's were akin to the roaring 20's, seemingly indestructible, and carefree, if not outright careless.  The soft tones, dominated by pinks, coral, grey and sea foam seemed to be everywhere.  Ah, if only we could go back-just for a moment, to relive it!  Don't be sad it's over- be glad it happened.
