I worked on it infrequently in the intervening time, between other stuff that distracted me.
Last weekend my friends Marie and Wayne came and picked up the finished work...
Not great photos but you get the idea, the texture shows up quite well. I'm quite happy with the movement and light... but I'm no Caravaggio.
It's less abstracted than I'd like but doing commissions is not always what you'd do for yourself. It sometimes makes a chore out of what you normally do for fun.
Still, it fills the brief, and I never do a painting without learning something. That's the important thing.
