It's coming along really well Te! I hate doing portrait commissions, too stressful! I like doing portraits though :D

Thanks Eliza :) I'm just taking my time with it. Keep pondering what to do next. I't been a long time since I've painted a portrait, let alone 3 faces at once. I had to resize all individual faces from 3 different photos so that I could get them onto the canvas. That was a job and a half. lol

To top it off, the lady paid total up front, so I do feel a bit pressured.

TeAnne,
was this commissioned from your website or from Ebay sales? Just interested to know if the web is working in favor of commissions lately. I had several commissioned pieces because of my sales last year from Ebay, but with the down trend in sales this year, even that dropped off....like kerplunk....to the bottom.

Right now, my commissions have been from folks who see my work at my home.

Hi Carly
This was ebay related. A lady from the M2M (Member to Member Help board AU) saw my auctions and liked what she saw and asked me. I said yes :D

That's good to know. I still want to list some auctions but recently have been too busy with getting a solo show ready to paint anything else....and the gallery that is carrying my art now wants more unframed matted pieces for their bins.

That's the reason I dropped out of selling thru auctions for awhile but this fall I want to rev it up again. There's always a chance that a new strategy will work :)

I know you will do very well with what you do Carly :) Way to go.

Here is the next update. Not much more to go really. Hair, eyes, specs.

I am sure your client will be delighted with the finished picture. I didn't realise you did this sort of work. I am really looking forward to the final touches.

Hi Mary & Trish, thank you :)
Yep, the client is happy. I send her updates every night. She is shopping around for a frame already. lol

Yeah, Mary, This is how I started out in painting. lol When I went to university, this style ceased. So, I really havn't done portraits in a long, long time. Not in oils anyway.

TeAnne! This is marvelous! I still can't believe you did three-likenesses-in-one! I struggle so much with one likeness at a time. This painting is fantastic!:D

Thanks MaryAnn
It's been a struggle but they have great faces to work with. I used to do a lot of portraits once.
