I FINALLY finished this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
only took about a year *whistles* yeh… ok, so I ignored it for about 6 months… blah, didn’t even want to look at it, 😦 poor thing, … then a friend came over the other day and said ‘hey is that for sale??” and I thought, I REALLY MUST FINISH THAT. …..and did , the next day. 🙂 To be honest, im not in love with it. Im ‘ok’ with it. I see faults in it , which is really highly unusual for me- to pick faults in my own work, im normally good with the end reult and can feel satisfied, I hark back to what I was saying about it in the last blog entry it featured in…a looooooong time ago: this painting was inspired by another painting, its not a copy, but aspects are similar and I never ever ‘got my groove on’ with it, it wasn’t coming from ‘within me’, it was out of me. SO, there it is. And I need to get over it and move on. 🙂
oh and finished this commission (to Oz):

REALLY happy with this. Its for a lovely lady who already has a few of my pieces and wanted this to compliment another of mine, both in her bedroom. 🙂 how appreciative an I??!
Lots of repeat work for the same people, its so great developing that relationship, that is the reward for sure.
Im keeping my own projects going at the same time though, this is what keeps the flow going, when i have some things that are free reign, alongside the commissions, which still come form within me, and Im so lucky that my commissions are all from people who want me to go for it with my spin on it. Fantastic.
Posted to Arizona/USA and KIama(Australia) yesterday,, after the school holidays I have one going to Holland and several more to Oz. LOVING IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Life is good.
