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.
