En file, sur un fil
(8” x 36”, oil on canvas)

In my experience accepting commissioned work can be tricky. Often times what I envision is not what the client had in mind. For this piece the client wanted a specific size and a composition similar to one of my paintings she had seen elsewhere. I provided a pencil sketch for initial approval and followed that up with the first rough-in of the actual painting. At both times my client was very complimentary. I have now finished the work and have again sent my client a photo. 

I am happy to report we are both very pleased with the outcome; I thoroughly enjoyed the work and my client is happy with both the process and the final result.
