Now that the holidays have come and gone I can post a few of the commission pieces I've done. Anniversary was an interesting request. I love this couple and when the wife approached me to create a dictionary drawing for their anniversary, I was baffled about what image to use on the definition. I decided the best option was to forget about generic images but instead to try to use one of their wedding photos.
Here is the result. I may advertise taking more commissions like this for baby announcements, weddings and other special events.

This commission was from a friend who wanted me to create the images of their three, beloved cats. I was sent a multitude of photos via Facebook of their animals only to discover that I couldn't tell one cat from the other. I saw three, grey cats with no particular differences. After more discussion I was able to learn something about each cat's personality and size. When the patron got their drawing they were pleased so "whew!"
It is always a struggle to create a commissioned piece. I generally don't enjoy commissions but I sure like making the sale. Now I have two, large scale family portraits on commission to be completed in pastels. I hope they will be a little easier to capture.
