My First Commission

Well, I did it!  I got my first commission painting finished!  I am excited, and the customer is quite happy with it.  What a nice feeling it was when she asked if I'd be interested in doing a painting for her, let alone finishing it and seeing her joy and excitement.  I hope I get more work soon!  Here's a peek at the painting I did for her.

Other news for this month:
I was selected in for a Juried Show last week.  It was the "2010 Annual Juried Show" through the Suffolk Art League, showing at the Suffolk Museum, Suffolk, VA.  I had entered three paintings, and one was actually selected for the show.  That is again my first experience with being selected for a juried show, so I was a bit nervous.  But it all worked out well.  The Exhibition Opening was very nice with a lot of artists and art enthusiasts.  Here is the piece that was selected:

Winter Cardinal

Well, that's my excitement for November so far.  I'm back in Watercolor class and getting new ideas all the time.  Next week I'm going to work on painting on a feather.  I'll write about that and let you know how it went next week.
Have a great day!
