Perfect Day commission finished and delivered. Whoppee!!
There’s always a sense of relief when a commission piece is delivered and the client is pleased. I was really pleased with it and after two months of working on it, there is a huge emotional attachment to a piece of work that you have put your creative energy into. This excitement is replaced with major last minute jitters as the time for unveiling approaches. But …. thankfully it looked wonderful and they have an amazing space in which to hang it.
Doing a commission can be daunting, but after discussion about the types of style they liked and colour, I was given the freedom to paint what I liked. There is a growing trend of people wanting a piece of art to fit in with their scheme of decoration and commissioning a painting gives them this, as well as an original piece of art.
