Fresh Commission Work
About this piece:
A year or so ago, A collector bought an impressionistic pirate ship painting from Ryan ("Waters Unknown"). Inspired by this piece, she based her living room decor on it.
More recently, she reached out to Ryan to commission a sister piece. Request: Matching color palette, under the night sky, and with a mermaid.
Both the she and Ryan were ecstatic for the finished product. Just as Ryan inspired this collector, so too has she now inspired Ryan: he will be doing more night skies and mermaids in the future.
