A Summer Full of Commissions!

First off I can't believe it's already the end of Aug!
I suppose most of my time went to my solo show in Revelstoke that I had set up for the month of July filled with 23 large paintings... the largest being 7x4 feet! Or perhaps what kept me the most busiest was the 4 commissions I had in July/Aug with 3 more commissioned paintings that I have set up for their completion in Sept/Oct. Now what seems to baffle me every year is getting ready for Winter Holiday Shows in the middle of summer! I just recently finished setting up my schedule to attend 4 shows in November for all you early Holiday Shoppers!... That's one every week!

Now back to the commissions...I thought I would show you a bit more of the work behind one of my commissions. This commission I completed in July for a soccer lover's new baby boy!!

Here are the images he sent me prior to the start of the commission.

And here is the completion of the painting!
As you can see there were a couple of things that were customized to the customer's own liking such as the writing, color, and the overall style of the painting...which ultimately changed these photo's into a vivid and lively soccer painting!
Doesn't it just make you want to go to a soccer game in Italy?!
