Art Commissions, I Love Them

It's been a busy couple of weeks.  My young grandkids and their parents came to visit.  We had a great time going to the pool, park, museum and eating - wow, kids are constantly eating!  They're gone and now I'm back to work.  I just finished a lovely house commission for a wonderful client.  She was easy to work with.  However, I think that communicating with her often really made the process run smoothly.  I talked with her first about what she wanted, repeating her comments at times for clarification.  I sent her a rough draft for approval.  About half-way through the drawing, I sent another photo to make sure I was on the right track. I emailed the final photo and made adjustments.

I love doing custom house portraits!  Talking with clients, making sure I'm meeting their needs, creating a painting that will bring joy - it's a great feeling.


  1. I'm sure your client is very pleased. What a great painting.

  2. This is so pretty! I enjoy doing custom work too. It's a lot of fun to get someone else's fresh ideas and new perspective.

  3. Thank you Sweet Posy Dreams & Tiffany! I just delivered the painting & it's so great to see a satisfied client's reaction!
