This is a painting I finished this week for some very dear friends of mine. I titled it "Concorde" and It measures 30" x 30". I like painting for friends, family, or people I know, but it is FAR more stressful than painting for myself or galleries. I guess I just want to make sure they really like it, and that it meets all their expectations. Plus I know I will see them and the painting again, so I have to try my best. This way I don't hate it in a couple years when I see it, rip it off their wall, and attempt to re-work it. I am sure most artists would understand that feeling or urge. I had a string of commissions and paintings for friends to get done, that was the last one scheduled, back to painting for the galleries.
A bit of news...it sounds like I may have a one-man show scheduled for mid 2010. I will post more on that later when I have final word.
