Tuscany Sunshine

"Tuscany Sunshine" This is a commissioned canvas I made for someone after my art show. It is 9" x 14" I hope she likes it...she is a quilt artist and designs some very fantastic quilts of I am a little intimated. This is a lot harder than I thought. I think I would rather just make something and sell it if they like it instead of a special order.....a lot of pressure. I am working on the second canvas and it is commissioned also. Even more stressful as it is someones grandson with a specific theme...STRESS.....I have to admit tho, it is nice to finally be making some money with my art after all these years. Anyway it is really still fun and I think she will like it..I had her e-mail me three photos so I could pick the one I wanted and also get a little personality from them. It is in progress but I will share it with you when finished. Have a Artful weekend. Diane

i hear you diane. it is a lot of stress. that's why i stopped doing so many of them. now i only do ones where people say you can make anything you want to. you did a beautiful job with your canvas!

Tuscany is one of my favorite places. You have captured the essense of the Tuscan sun perfectly. Warm, but not oppressive.....lending a rosy glow to everything it touches, making one want to do everything (al fresco) outdoors in the open air.

"Tuscany Sunshine" is a beautiful piece. I'm sure that your client will be thrilled. I know I would be.

Best Wishes,

Well, would you look at THAT stunning piece! Wowee girl! It is incredible!

I have just done my first few commissioned pieces and let me tell you, it is not easy. I agree with you but you are fully capable of doing it and doing it well. I bet the more you do it, the easier it will get. This coming from someone that has a hard time even doing a themed swap! (which is a commission of a sort) My brain works a whole lot harder. But, you do so many things so well, I think you will do very well in commission work and you COULD and probably SHOULD charge more! Congratulations to you, dear lady! I just love seeing you work and it getting the appreciation and wows it deserves!
