Next commission on the easel. 

I painted an oil portrait from a wonderful photograph a friend showed me. The oil painting eventually was received by the subject. He recently commissioned me to paint a portrait of his wife. This is a gorgeous photograph, and I’m excited to start painting tomorrow. The sketches are done and I transferred my favorite to the canvas today. 

He delivered his painting so I could consider size and format because they will be hung together. 

Commission Completed!

From 5 different pictures and lots of research on farm equipment, this commission was signed, sealed and delivered on time!
