|"In one of my Moods"
11" x 11" commission painting
I've had this commission since March of 2014, and the guilt just took over me today, so instead of doing my people paintings with abstract backgrounds, I did a "girl chicken" in front of an abstract background. I feel like such a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders! Below are the other 2 that are companions for this painting. The buyer bought the middle painting from my 30 in 30 Challenge from last year, and wanted the chicken and rooster to go with it. Hope she is pleased with the results. This painting is acrylic, watercolor, and collage. To hear about the process of the dripping acrylic background, go to last year's blog from January 13, 2014.

I'd love to get a conversation going about commission paintings with other artists out there! Please post your comments below. I have a love/hate feeling about them. It's great to get sales, but I need to set deadlines for completion. I think they push me to new levels, but obviously (from how long it takes me to complete them), I must not like being told what to paint! I'm so spoiled!
