A Commission

Hi, This is a commission, painted from a pretty bad reference photo. I know some people refuse to use bad reference photos but sometimes you don't have a choice. This was painted for the grandmother of this little girl and she had to sneak the reference photo away from her daughter. I cropped it to focus on the area around her face which made it even harder to see detail. Anyway she is very pleased with it and I am hoping her daughter loves it too. This is oil on a 8 X 10 Raymar panel and she is purchasing it in this frame.

I am working on a couple of pieces for a show in February so I can't show you those until the end of January. The theme is dance and I love the idea.

Also I just heard today I was accepted into a show in February, it's in a church and it's their 6th year. I did it last year but we had a huge snow storm so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for good weather this year.

Please check out my paintings on Ebay It's getting late for commissions but the pieces on Ebay could be there for Christmas.

Ah, the challenges of commissions from photos! Great job and thanks for your input on my recent posts.

Lovely, Barbara. And some very good paintings can be made from bad photos. This left you with the 'idea' in stead of too much detail!
