"You should let me do some drawings of your animals for this blank wall here."
"Oh, no. If you do art of my animals, it needs to match my house."
*me thinking about how she repaints the interior of her house every six months, in every color of the rainbow*
Two days later she grabs the painting off of my table (don't have an easel yet) and runs next-door.
"I love it! I love it! I love it!"
My first commission: four 24x24 inch paintings at $50 each!
Fast-forward to 2011. Shipped three pieces to NC for a woman named Courtney. The paintings immortalize her pack of four. She wrote me last week: "The paintings arrived and they look fantastic!! Even our 3 year old daughter loves them, and she is hard to please! She keeps running into the dining room to look at them."
Now... 12.42 AM... I have to work on a public art installation proposal, put together a promotional packet and send out donation prints. An artist's work is never done!
