My First Commissioned Piece

My Aunt saw this piece I made earlier this year and fell in love with it.

She wanted me to make a large piece copy of it. This piece was originally done on 8.5x5. Now I had create it on an 18x24 canvas. Yikes!!! That was a lot of canvas...a lot of canvas. Can I say that again a lot of canvas. Most of my pieces up to that point were small in comparison. The largest one was 11x14. This was just about double in size. Okay I have to say it one more time that was a lot of canvas. It took me about 2 months before I finally sat down to do it.

I held my breath as I gave it to her and she loved it. What a relief. Am I still scared of those big canvases... you bet. But I'm doing another one and I'll post it when it's done.
Thanks for stopping by

  1. I'm sure the large expanse can make it hard to judge proportions. You did a great job. Beautiful piece!
