I’m working on a commission at the moment. I think it’s an honour for someone to ask you to paint something just for them, but it’s also a massive challenge! This particular commission is for a friend of mine.

I’ve restarted this work once, which was for the best and I’m so much happier with it. This time round the piece has a much better composition and I’m so much happier with the overall look. I should say at this point that I didn’t finish it first go round and that it just sat on the easel almost finished for a while before I worked up enough courage to paint over it!

I’m not sure how other artists take on commission, but I take them on risk free, as I will only paint subjects I enjoy and will only ask patrons to buy what they like.

On other news, A tui moment, sold, which is another huge honour and the peron who bought that is keen on a kea on the same size canvas. Watch this space!

      Loving the commissioned work in progress (as one of the honored few whom had a sneak peak!-) ), although deeply saddened by my loss of a Tui Moment, that should’ve been mine!! ;-p
