"Sir Oliver," 12" square, commissioned harlequin Great Dane portrait in acrylic on Ampersand Gessoboard, private collection (THANK YOU!). Inquiries may always cometo me.
I've just sent images of this painting to my client for review. This is the worst possible part of the commission process, at least for me. I always think the painting is perfect until I send it off, and then I start second guessing myself. And if it takes my client longer than 10 minutes to respond, I am convinced they hate it.
Some say artists are their own worst critics. I know I fit that bill.
But, despite waiting to hear back from my client, I am very happy with Oliver's painting (look at the little snippet of pink on his nose!). I think I'll reward myself with a truffle and some sassafras tea.
Yeah, that sounds like a plan.
Oh, and while I was typing this up, the client responded, and he simply loves Oliver's painting.
Truffles for everyone!!
Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.
