Simultaneously, I painted a 12 x 9 foot grand palace staircase for the school play, which led to a commissioned piece. The overwhelmingly encouraging responses from these two works gave me prompted to dive into to painting seriously. A little after that year, I was painting nearly every day and emboldened to claim the title, artist.
