Whew!

I finished that large portrait commission! Everytime I accept a 48"x36" commission I forget how big they are, hehe. It's fun painting that big though - it leaves so much room for detail!

It turned out really well - I just sent the pics of it to the customer for approval. I'll post some pics of it up here if everything's okay =) I just took digital photos of it instead of scanning since it's so big and I wanted to get it to the client asap (it'd probably take a good six hours to scan & piece together a painting that size!).

Now I'm antsy to paint a new original! Something fun, and small, hehe. My knees are killing me from painting while kneeling the whole time these past several days, lol. Especially from kneeling on pencils & paintbrushes - ouch!

I think I will do a new candy-fairy (like Spearmint Sprite or Licorice Fairy. I was thinking of doing a chocolate themed one - I've been craving chocolate a lot lately!

I'm going to fix us up some lunch right quick first though, and after that you'll be able to peek in on me HERE as usual! I'll need to set the webcam back up on the desk, hehe.

Matt's painting the living room today! It's been a horrid blue shade ever since we bought it last June. We're painting it a colour called "Desert Moss" (it's Behr brand - http://www.behr.com - just search Desert Moss on the "search colours" page). Kind of a dark neutral brown/green colour. We'll see..... I'm sure it will be better than that icky blue, at any rate! It also looks like it would be a good starting point for some of the mural accents I want to add in the living room later.........

Okay, off to make food!
