I am very pleased to announce that my first commission, Charley, is finished and the owner loves it! I asked if I could quote her. She said “The painting makes my heart smile!”
I’ve ordered the matboard for it, she decided on an offwhite and a steel gray blue, and I’ll post a photo when it’s framed. The painting itself is 13″ by 15″ so I’m thankful I have a mat cutter so I can cut this custom size myself.
I’m counting this as part of the 30 in 30 because we last saw it without a background and I’ve added that this week. Once again life is busy so I’m not posting every day but I am painting most days, and that’s a habit that I will be happy to continue. That’s my goal for this month and next…painting most days and posting several times a week. Wish me luck!
Speaking of goals, I’ve ordered a variety of matboard colors and will soon have prints in standard sizes for sale at the Sunland Art Gallery and later this fall, available online. Stay tuned!
