Okay on to business. I've nothing new for my shop so far; however, I'm finishing up a custom painting a day it seems. One of the best things about my job is the people I get to meet, and the fact that every day brings something new and fresh. Many artists don't enjoy commissions, but I love them, because it means I don't have time to suffer from "Artists Block". I wake up, make a smoothie, and sit down to a new idea just waiting for me to tackle it with form and colour.
And then there are the people I meet. I love hearing from clients that I painted portraits for a year ago, coming back to me this year for new paintings. I can see how their children have grown up, and learn a little about life in other countries and cultures. This painting, above, is for a favourite client of mine in Paris, France. I'm always delighted to hear from her, because I know she'll have something a little different, a little out of the ordinary for me. I'm sharing the first of 4 paintings with you today. Enjoy!
