The best part of the month though was working on my current pet portrait commission Ollie. I showed you a sneak peek of the fabulous, fibrous paper I found to create him with and my wonderful client was okay with me posting early pictures of the project here to share with you all, she's a fellow PPF-er.
Here he is. He's about 90% complete, he still needs some more straggly chin fur and I'm not finished shading his eye wells yet but he is coming along quite nicely. The very, very best part though, of my whole month was my clients response
absolutely fricking AMAZING!!!!! I love him!!!!!!!!!!! Robin he is magnificent! super hugs, thanks & "admiration"
Now I don't know about you but for me, as an artist, I live for this kind of response. I've re-read the email a half a dozen times and walk away with a big smile every time. It was worth all of the extra hours upon hours I've spent fussing to get him just right.
Here are 3 paintings I sold over the Holiday weekend, I guess it was a popular weekend for horses!
