SOLD! "Waiting to Take You Home"

My 36"x36" oil painting, "Waiting To Take You Home", sold yesterday!  It will travel from my gallery in San Francisco, California, Simon Breitbard Fine Arts, to Maryland to hang in my collectors home.  I posted it on Facebook and she contacted me right away and told me that they she had already moved other art around to make a space.  I love when a piece of my work grabs somebody and just won't leave them alone.  This painting is part of a new surreal series of donuts in unlikely environments.  My new paintings give the donut a story with layers and makes it even more whimsical!  Thank you so much Tanique and Bruce Plaxen!

"Venice Canal" 30"x24" commisioned oil painting by Terry Romero Paul

My new collector just sent me this photo of the painting she commissioned framed and hanging in her new home in Georgia.  We talked about what she would like and we decided a scene from their beloved time in Venice would be a good subject.  She told me she liked abstract painting which is a stretch for me since I usually do realism.  I think I struck a good medium ground on this painting. I really enjoyed the challenge and I am very happy my client was so pleased with the end result.

Out into the midnight sky, I stare in wonder
At the grand design of how our planet dances with the sun
And I’m thinkin’ this could be
God’s way of whispering
A story’s being told and the best is yet to come
