Occasionally I work on commission. What I like about these projects is that they get me to step out of my normal style and stretch in other ways. Having worked in the abstract realm for so long it is an adjustment to work in the world of realism. The process pushes me out of my comfort zone. Eyes, feathers and webbed feet? This piece for a nursery required practice and a lot of attention to detail. I got to use methods I don't normally bring into my practice (dry brush) and I really focused on refinement. Happy with how it turned out and even happier for the new momma!
