San Diego Weddings and Unique Portraits

Welcome to my archived blog space for Papaya Sky Photography. I ran Papaya Sky Photography part time in addition to my day job from the end of 2009 to 2012. After my son turned a few months old I decided to retire the business in order to focus more of my time on my two young kids and my day job.

Personal: A new painting!

It's been a while since I've gotten a chance to continue my series of abstract paintings that I began a few years ago, but last fall I got the perfect spurt of inspiration to finish this small gem. My uncle decided to buy a brand-new house and wanted to fill it with some bright pieces of artwork. Originally he called me inquiring about ordering some prints of my other paintings, but a few days later I got a call for for an original piece...from his son and daughter. They had decided to pool their resources to get their dad a painting for a Christmas present and I was the lucky recipient of the commission.

I'd forgotten how much I enjoy the layers and layers of colors build to create different shades and depths in the surface.
