Re: Playing with the Angels - WIP - FINISHED!

Thanks Deirdre, I have stepped back, I'm done .

Thank you Marina, I'm relieved to be finished, it's time to move on!

Thanks so much Karen, you're so very nice.

Thank you Laurie! Hope everything is going well, see you soon!

Thanks John & Jean, I really appreciate your following along.

Thank you David, what a nice thing to say.

Thanks so much bluemoonstar and Katie!

Thanks very much Kris, such a nice thing to say.

Thank you Maya. I live on Long Island, and yes I do know about the portrait exhibition in Connecticut as well as the National Portrait Society. The thing is, this really isn't my painting, it is my client's. It never really was my painting, thought it certainly felt like it as I painted it. Whenever I do commissions I have to take that approach, otherwise I'd get attached to each and every one. This one is truly special though, and I will miss having it around. Maybe after a while I'll enter it into a show. I think right now my client really wants to have it hanging on his wall for a bit.

Hi Lizbenn1905, welcome to the Pastel Forum! Thanks so much for commenting, I truly appreciate it.

Thanks so much Randy, I appreciate it!

Thank you artsask!

Note to everybody: My client loves the painting, he can't wait until it is framed and hanging on his wall. He is truly thrilled, which makes me one happy camper!

Re: Playing with the Angels - WIP - FINISHED!

We all love your painting too! And if it can do that to those of us without a connection to this beautiful lady, I can only imagine how it is for him to be able to see her again, every day. Though it started out a commission, it somehow seems more a gift with all you've given to it.

Re: Playing with the Angels - WIP - FINISHED!

You know Chris, if you want to increase, even further, the value of this painting to the owner, you might consider giving him the gift of this series of posts.

The care that you have taken with this painting of his lovely wife and all of our appreciation of it makes it truely more than "just" an exquisite image, on into the universality of human experience, referring both to the emotional aspect of their relationship and the developing creative experience, as well.

Just a thought!

Re: Playing with the Angels - WIP - FINISHED!

Thank you so much Judi, patsbeads, RooGal, and Marcus! I truly appreciate it, my client is very pleased. This whole experience has been a joy to me, thank you all.

Thanks so much Karen great minds think alike . I gave him a link to this thread two weeks ago, so he may even be reading it as I'm typing this response! He is truly amazed and warmed by the fact that she is somehow touching so many people, even now. I think he is overwhelmed, as am I. This truly has been a very special experience, one I will treasure always.

I've said it before but it bears repeating, the group of people on this Pastel Forum are so wonderful and supportive, a great bunch of artists that have gathered from all across the globe in a common interest, "pastels". The sharing of technique, approach, ideas, and knowledge is truly priceless, we are so fortunate.
