Commission Painting Joys

Thoroughly enjoyed painting this commission piece! I think my client had an excellent idea of creating a painting of sites from her hometown that played important roles in her family’s history.

This 22×30 inch watercolor took a couple months to complete, especially as I used very small brushes for detail work. It was fun to watch the progress as I finished each building.

Flexibility in Scheduling

One of the many benefits of teaching individual art lessons is that I can give my students flexibility in scheduling! I teach lessons throughout the day and into the evening. For some students this means they can schedule their lessons from week to week on the days best suited for them. Other students prefer to have set schedules with “their time and day”. Either way, flexibility is key!
