“To date, this portrait is one of the most difficult pieces I have ever put together!” exclaimed Shannon Lightfoot upon completion. The final stage of any commission is always the job of putting all the pieces back into place. It took the artist and four others over 3 days to accomplish that task. When asked what made this portrait so difficult Shannon replied that “the cut lines of the crowd in the background were impossible to differentiate from each other thus when the time came to reassemble the work I could only do so by trial and error.” Was it a terrible experience? “Not at all!” He claimed. “I still laugh about it. This portrait was an adventure made worthwhile by the content. I felt fortunate to be able to create a piece for a truly fantastic client.
