I've begun the process of creating a set of paintings for a family friend. It's my first commission* and I'm definitely putting a lot of extra effort in to make sure it goes well.
Besides creating about a million sketches, I painted some color swatches for possible color combinations...and ended up kind of liking how they looked all together. Funny how sometimes the most random things in the studio turn out!
* Ok, besides that time my mom wanted some Iowa-themed paintings when my parents first moved to the state...not super glamorous. :) I obviously chose corn as my subject matter.
