How To Preserve Your Vacation Memories

How To Preserve Your Vacation Memories?
Our homes are natural storytellers. Their adorned walls, marked-up floors, slept-in sheets all paint a vivid picture about the places we’ve been and the kind of people we are. To say that looks aren’t important, in this case, doesn’t fly. Your space truly serves an extension, not of your appearance, but of your experiences.

So, how do we keep our best memories and experiences alive?

Art, of course. Commissions, more specifically.

A_-_Gulf_Gate_Living_Room
What’s a commission? A commissioned work of art is a piece created specifically for you based on your specifications and desires, by Lloyd Dobson Artist from Siesta Key – Sarasota, Florida.Lloyd_Dobson_-_Siesta_Key_Public_Beach_-_Horizontal

How does it work? It starts with you and your ideas – whether they be extremely detailed, or loose guidelines.

Let’s pretend for a minute. (Say your favorite place in the world is Siesta Key, Florida.)

You traveled there when you were 27. You walked the sugar white sand beach for three weeks with your best friend from college. You unlocked the condo door for the first time and were welcomed by an open view of the aqua Gulf waters that could only be outdone by the green coconut palm trees swaying in the tropical breeze peeking through between you and the beach. You flung your suitcases on the floor and cracked the 2 euro bottle of vino you picked up stared out the window until it was gone.

THOSE are the kind of moments commissioned artworks are capable of capturing.

How does the artist know what to do? You will connect with Lloyd Dobson Artist and facilitate the back and forth to make it as seamless as possible. You’ll work with him and relay details, big or small, that you want included in your piece, along with the feeling you want it to convey and specifics you have in mind like size, color and orientation. All of his artwork is on stretched canvas.Lloyd_Dobson_Painting_A_Beach_Scene_#1

Lloyd Dobson Artist will then give you a timeline and update you with his studio sessions before you receive your final piece.

Why are commissions awesome?  They simultaneously “bring you back,” and move forward with you for the rest of your long life. Plus, the artistic flairs of your favorite artist make these types of pieces rich with personality and authentic style.

Have your favorite memory in mind?

Well it is simple to recapture. Send an email to lloyddobsonartist@gmail.com for a FREE quote.
