Sincere thank you to the art collector from Westminster CO who recently purchased an art print of my oil painting called WITH PASSION!

This hand-painted boudoir portrait in oil suggests a passion for music and the instruments. I composed this oil painting using a number of different photos as reference. I combined separate photos of each instrument in many different arrangements before I was satisfied with the composition. I made the prominent Grand piano disappear into the dark background. The bass and cello are apparently haphazardly strewn about to further suggest an uncontrolled passion for music. The violin and French horn at the base of the piano reflect in the shiny hardwood floor giving the impression that this is a classy conservatory or music room. Also included are a saxophone and trumpet to complete the sound spectrum and add reflective qualities to the scene. The toppled metronome used to keep time has been deliberately discarded suggesting a timeless passion of music from the heart.

TESTIMONIAL FROM ANOTHER SATISFIED CUSTOMER:
Dear Hanne,
"A few weeks ago I bought a canvas print of "With Passion" for my daughter's birthday. She loves it! Like the woman in your painting, my daughter loves playing her grand piano, and has since she was a child. She is passionate about it, second only to her family. Thank you so much for sharing your marvelous talent with those of us who wish we could paint as beautifully as you do." - Barbara Carpenter, USA

New Watercolor Portrait

COLORADO CUTIE


MORE HANNE LORE KOEHLER PORTRAITS
 
Order your child's portrait early to avoid the Christmas rush!

This Colorado Cutie is Julia. I have just completed this watercolor portrait of Julia as a young girl commissioned by her aunt as a gift for Julia's graduation.

The photo that she sent as reference was taken many years ago in her backyard in daylight, which made it a pleasure to work from; however, the background was not very pleasing or complementary to the beautiful image of the child. Her aunt requested that I paint a Colorado autumn scene in the background with gorgeous fall Aspen colors. I splashed tones of yellow, orange and brown to represent the leaves of Aspen trees and then strategically painted some tree trunks and branches so they would not interfere with the portrait. I painted some blue sky areas to complement the blue denim jacket. We could not tell from the photo the color of Julia's eyes so I reflected the blue jean jacket and sunlight in her eyes to make them sparkle. I fell in love with Julia's precious ponytails and to make them stand out, I painted the background much darker and left plenty of white sunlit highlights to accent her delightful fly-away hair.

Julia is now a beautiful young lady with a bright future. All the best, sweetie!
