Truthfully, I will admit I am prone to forgetting things at times. I forgot to turn the oven off last night, frequently forget to turn lights off, and significantly to taking photographs of my art work before they are gone, etc etc. I go through stages of efficiency, but I guess everyone does – right?
Anyway, a few weeks ago a lady got in contact about doing a commission piece of her two pugs, after seeing my little Pablo painting;
I was honestly thrilled to pieces! I have never had a commission request from a complete stranger so this was an exciting opportunity. We chatted, and I received photographs from her and worked up a fair sized painting (which I forgot to take a decent photograph of so I apologise);
Really, the painting felt such a big scale to work on, and yet looks so tiny in the living space. Hopefully I will be able to do something like this again soon.
In the meantime, I have finished my 90cm diameter circle piece for my university work, (photos to come tomorrow hopefully if I remember); with a couple other paintings on the way. I am really looking forward to the exhibition in May, 2016 has flown out of our hands it feels so I have no doubt that the exhibition will be knocking at the door in a heartbeat.
Distracting myself, I completed a quick afternoon painting last week;
‘Enigma’ being the word of the day after partially watching The Imitation Game, but also connoting mystery and secrecy. This little painting is for sale if anyone wishes to purchase, although I will be adding it to my Etsy shop over the coming weeks so keep a look out!
