"When You Love What You Do, It's No Longer Work" Acrylic Media Painting on Canvas (Commissioned - Prints are not available for sale)


Jocelyn created this piece in honor of her brother Joelle's birthday which is why it has his birth date at the top right of the painting. The image behind his birth date is a photo of Joelle skydiving on his birthday. In this piece, the Artist wanted to capture Joelle’s creative talent, dedication as a family man, and passion about life.

Materials: Acrylic paints and Mediums, personal photographs, Relax Magazine clippings, recycled wrapping paper, corrugated cardboard, old film strips, color pencils

Accepting Commissioned Art Projects:

I accept commissioned art projects so if you would like something custom made for you or your client, please contact me so we may discuss what you would like done. 

If you'd like me to integrate your own photographs into the artwork, they need to have high quality overall -- in terms of what's included in the frame, contrast, balance and size. I will also need the creative freedom to follow my intuition to produce a well-composed mixed-media collage. A deposit is required before I start on a commissioned project.  To learn more about my Commission Work processes, please visit this link.

Copyright Notice:

Please note that unless I expressly sign over copyright to the person who's commissioned the painting or it was done as work for hire, copyright remains with the Artist (me). Owning the actual original painting is not the same as owning copyright and reproduction rights in the painting.

If you are looking for special uniqueness, a high-level of personalization, and a truly extraordinary customized artwork which expresses our authentic human experience and emotional connections, or captures the deep history of the subject matter, contact me for a commissioned painting.

I am a storyteller. When I approach a project, I contemplate the story, memories, emotions and sentiments that I want to convey. I want my work to be meaningful, and to start awareness -- whether the artwork is about honoring someone's loved one, a family's togetherness, special events, or a humanitarian cause... Art has the power to steer people toward the truth or to an individual's redemptive identity.
