…in a good way. The backstory begins with artist Ray Ferrer’s blog. I came across his blog about a year ago and I love his spray-painted art pieces. Over the last year, I’ve wanted to commission a painting but could never decide on the subject.
Recently Ray offered discounted custom prints so I immediately started going through photos to see which one would make a perfect addition to our home. His work has an edge to it and I found several photos I would love to see on our walls. But as I went through my photos, I kept thinking how wonderful a spray-painted portrait of my brother-in-law Frankie, who died tragically in a motorcycle accident this past September, would look in my in-law’s home. Frankie was an edgy guy with a great sense of humor and Ray captured him on canvas. As stated on his blog: “The work is raw, it’s stripped back, it’s honest”.
Raw and honest is a good was to describe how I felt when I saw the final work. And so I’m told I made my mother-in-law cry when she saw it too.
