Stepped away from crazy quilt blocks this past week to fill a couple orders.
The first is a watercolor painting that was commissioned. I had never personally seen the home until I delivered the painting and really worried I had missed some detail in the photo that was provided. The client seemed very pleased. I love painting!
I do tend to worry and fret when I am working on a painting for a client. One false move or spill can ruin the painting and make it necessary to redo it all. There are some tricks to fix minor problems that I've discovered. I have essential tremors (shaky hands) and have to be especially careful with details such as the scrolls in this painting. It is always a relief when I finish. I hadn't painted for quite awhile so now I have the urge to do more and I'm already mulling over ideas for my next painting.
The following little guy is from my last post. There was a request for one from a friend. Done and on its way to Canada!
Now to figure out my next block for CQJP 2015. I will be falling behind the next couple of months as I have a week I will be spending with my granddaughters while their mother takes a class out of town and then spending two weeks in Italy. So excited about the upcoming trip! If any of you have advice, please share as I have never been there before. Anxious and excited at the same time!
