Against my better judgement I've taken on a commission. My friends have a wonderful house in the mountains that their architect son designed.... airy and light, with a view to the coast. They have often expressed a desire to own one of my paintings, but I just didn't have the right one for the chosen spot. So, I volunteered to do a painting in the right format, and palette, to suit.
It is still 'on the way' but so far, so good.
The painting is 2' x 3' , acrylics on gallery-wrapped, wide edge canvas. It is based on their fishpond, over which you cross to enter the house.
I had free rein to choose the subject etc., and I really would like to see my work on their wall so I accepted the challenge.
I have yet to add more reflections on top of the fish, some depth to the water with the impression of 'dappled' light over the foliage.
Usually commissions make work out of what I do for pleasure, so I avoid them like the plague. I'm enjoying this tho' and will keep you posted on it's completion.
