One Price - SOLD

"One Price"
24x36 Oil on Canvas
Whew!  I finished this just in time for my trip.  This was a commission that for someone here in Singapore.  Kind of my first commission, really, and a total dream, if I do say so myself.  The patron just said he wanted a painting of "something having to do with Emerald Hill, but no pressure.  Please paint however or whatever you want within XX budget."  Seriously.  Who could ask for anything better?  In any case, I actually had a really tough time getting to this place.  Initially I tried a couple other compositions, and they just fell totally flat.  Then I saw this building.  At night time it is closed while all around it local bars are hopping.  But because of the lights hitting the bright colors at night, it kind of steals the show.  I had a ton of fun with this one.


  1. Really nice Shelby. Know your patron is going to be pleased. The lighting is wonderful against the beautiful colors in the building. Congratulations!

  2. Love the mystical atmosphere in this. Beautifully done.

  3. Love love love all your architectural paintings, shelby! you make me want to visit Singapore - great work! I added you to my blog - patti
