This is the commission that I've just finished. My buyer makes the most beautiful lampwork beads (she has a shop on etsy if you don't want to take my word for it!) and I was commissioned to do a painting inspired by them. After discussing a couple of options, we decided that one of my tree paintings, with "bead-like" leaves, would work well. Though I was spoiled for choice as to which beads I wanted to base the colours on, in the end we decided on this set as a colour reference - It was a very interesting way to approach a painting and the beads were so lovely - they were a great inspiration!
