"Kobe's New Coiffe"

IMG_7522 2.HEIC

I painted this as a 'thank you' gift to my client who had commissioned me to do a special painting for her parents. (I've decided not to include that painting as it was very personal for my client.) I was unaware at the time that Kobe only had a few weeks remaining on this earth. My client was moved to tears upon receiving 'Kobe's New Coiffe'.

" Oh my god!! It’s my baby!! You are fantastically talented"

- Lara Neroutsos, North Bay, ON

This was another 'special' painting. My client commissioned me to paint this for her daughter's birthday. Her daughter is very fond of her little stepbrothers, so this gift really meant a lot to her. They loved it so much, my client ordered three prints in addition to the original painting.

Mitch Tyler hired me to do this portrait of him playing his bass for the cover of a single he and his band recorded, named "Everything I Touch Turns to Blue". I liked it so much that he agreed for it to be part of my Musicians and Music collection. He and his wife both still love this painting.

“Wow Stephanie, that’s smokin', I love it! Thanks so much. Yeah, I got to give my props to JC, all the years I worked in his band the only thing he ever told me in terms of instruction was to always wear the tie on the stand. I was free to play whatever I wanted to, an unusual freedom coming from a bandleader [at Minton’s Playhouse in NYC], so when I show him this, I want him to see that I’m properly dressed. This painting is an unusual and unexpected treat for me.
Thanks again!

Julian”

 

After watching the TikTok video:

 

“Another WOW! Stephanie, I’m truly impressed by everything you are doing and at this point in my life, very few things impress me. But as I just told Peter, my problem now is trying to look as cool in person as I look in your painting! I’m having fun with this!!!!!”

The painting looks great to me and I think the sax improvements
worked out very well. 🙂

And thanks again for the how professional you managed the process of creating the paintings: the perfect communication, your flexible attitude and the very good end result.

- Mr. Pee Bee, the Netherlands
