Birthday Surprise!

Who doesn't love a birthday surprise?!?

After a recent visit to our studio Matt was captivated with Mike Hale's epoxy painting series, describing them as "graffiti under glass". Then and there, Mom and Dad knew their search was over and commissioned Mike Hale to produce a piece just for him. With insider information (wink-wink), Mike Hale created an abstract piece based on some of Matt's, science, and of course on top of the list...Sarah! Incorporating epoxy, gold leaf, sand and foil, using representational shapes, embossed images and intentional color fields, the painting took on a life of it's own.

When it came time to open his gift, the man of the hour just couldn't believe his eyes...his very own original Mike Hale painting! It's truly a gift that will be treasured for a lifetime!

Happy Birthday Matt!
