The following is a list of all entries from the commission category.

The Prettiest Songs.

I’ve been behind in my artwork. When is any artist not behind in their work? Can it really be possible to be producing enough, both to satisfy the outer need for showing/commissions/whatever and the inner need to just keep making things? Anyhow, digressions aside, I finished a piece that was commissioned from me a mere six months ago. This is for my husband’s paternal grandparents who narrowed down what they wanted to “something with blue in it.” This was actually a lot harder than it would seem – everytime I started and found a background that appealed to me, it wasn’t blue. Nor could I find any strong blue imagery for a non-blue background. Finally, it all came together, albeit with a fair amount of orange. Let’s hear it for complementary colors!


Commisioned Postcards, #9 & 10

These two are the pair that I’m least thrilled about – the idea of having these hard workers against brightly colored strips was better as an idea. Removing the context from the images of the climber and the shoveler just made them look really awkward. They’re certainly not terrible, but I expected so much more.
