Portrait is complete and beautiful, what’s next?

I wish I could post a picture now, but this last portrait is a surprise gift… I’m very excited about how it turned out! I can’t wait to show you all.

I was so anxious waiting to hear back from the collector… But this morning I got the “It looks great!!!” Yay, I love that. Thank you collector.

Now that the painting is ready to ship, I have some time before my next commission will start. If you know anyone who is interested in a portrait, please share my information with them.

For the last 9¬†years, I’ve gradually come to the point where there’s no difference in how long a portrait takes me for sizes under 11×14″. And you’d think they go faster and faster as I get more experienced, but it’s sort of the opposite. The more I know, the higher my expectations get, and the more nuanced my paintings are.

The difference between 11×14 and 16×20 is the first jump in size where the larger painting takes more planning and time to complete… I’m planning to do something with that information, but I’m not sure what…
