I’ve heard many artists say that they “don’t like commissions” but for me, it has become a huge welcome. A commission is not just money in the bank, it is an awesome opportunity to connect with people, it is also a chance to be challenged to create something that someone else wants. I love the interaction with people and am blessed to have requests for commission paintings.
I took photographs of the stages from this commissioned portrait because, for me, that is such an exciting part of what I do. I absolutely love seeing the painting emerge from the canvas. I also am posting a photo of my limited palette.

I’m looking forward to helping you own your commissioned portrait of a milestone in your life or as a celebration of the ones you love.

Enjoy 🙂 thanks for always being here!

    1. Hi Rita, Thank you for stopping by and giving me that message of encouragement. Soon I believe that I will have everything in order and then I’ll be more consistent online. I have another new grandbaby on the way and life is just as busy as ever, if not busier. I am thankful for people, like you, who continue to check in with me even when I post so sporadically. Thanks.
