This week I've finished the commissioned painting which I had been working on for awhile. Finishing paintings is always accompanied by a feeling of elation - a grand outward rush! - regardless of how long it has taken to make them. Today I am happy with everything.
A brief recap: The client will be able to choose two of the three paintings I made, in whatever combination they decide. In this way, they take part in the creative process. :)
Here are the various combinations, some of which I like better than others:
One Thing Becomes Another
mixed media on 3 stitched canvases
widths: 32", 35" and 38" x 29.5" height
After photographing them in pairs, I began playing around with various combinations of all three together, with and without spaces between the canvases:
I am oh-so-pleased with this work!
The people who commissioned me to make it have given me a lot of creative leeway and virtually no time constraint. This is how I work best. The painting is finished within my own estimated time frame, and I feel it is excellent work, better in some ways than I had imagined.
