This commission was so much fun and the client was so trusting. She gave me a ton of photos, gave me an idea of where to start and gave me free reign. How's that for being lucky? It is truly an artists dream come true. Turns out this is what I love to do - informal portraits - nothing too posed or expected - a little creativity - and a little trust - and there you are.
I've had a lot of luck in this painting journey. Thanks to everyone for their support and trust, it's what I love to do. Thanks again!
