Last year was the year of birdie painting commissions and this year is the year of horse painting commissions. I had THREE horse portrait commissions this Christmas and all of them were requested in different styles.
I know that some artists hate commission work but I am a freak… Initially I panic and then the thrill kicks in because I LOVE challenges! My husband always says that I make things hard on myself and push too much… I. MUST. GO. BEYOND. Ha ha! (Maybe it’s like an adrenaline junkie thing – minus the bungie cord.) 😉
I hope you enjoy these paintings though they are very different from my usuals… Don’t despair though I have a heap of landscapes up my sleeve for this coming year – I’ve been asked to put some into a beautiful little cafe in town. And possibly I’ll be working towards my own showing in the fall of 2016 – these are both great incentive to work -work WORK!
