The PaintingPreparation for a commission is always important to communicate between the collector and my brain.  This is the first step. 

The Thought:  Prep work is important when you are starting a commission piece.  It is essential to make sure you and the client are on the same page when you are beginning a painting for their home.  I spent some time on the phone with this collector and she sent numerous emails with pictures of the room from all angles. I was honored she wanted my artwork among the many pieces she had hanging already.

One of the most important pieces to the puzzle is the palette of colors that will be used. When you are planning a piece it makes a difference as to cool palette or warm palette  or even an analogous palette.
The next few days I will be posting the steps of this painting as it progressed. It is actually drying right now awaiting its prevarnish.  With this particular painting it is going between a large piece done in  oranges and one done in soft greens.  With in this new piece she wanted to tie in the colors of all the other pieces in the room and still compliment her burnt orange red paint in her entry hall that can be seen from the room.  Some folks actually send me fabric samples from their furniture.

I guess it is a lot like putting a puzzle together piece by piece, but when it comes down to it... the spirit must move the painting.  God doesn't need all the prep work I need, but I am confident when I do go to my canvas to paint, that His Spirit guides my creativity.

My blog is short, my hubby is very sick and time is precious to me. Lack of sleep and awake time in prayer right now as I balance caring for him and our household at the same time. 

Blessings of abundance.


Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.--1 Peter 5:7
