Remember this? I sold it. And then commissioned one. Yes, a man was so saddened when he had learned that he missed his chance to buy this that his darling (and she was a sweetheart) wife contracted me to create another one.
You know what's hard? Commissioned art. At least with a personality like mine. Will they like it as much as the one they saw? Its not the same. Not exactly the same. Will she like it as much as he did?
OMG, what if she hates it?
What if it doesn't go with their furniture and then she hates him for it? And every time she looks at it all she can think is 'God, how I hate that!' What IF?????? Really, I like it when people just buy the one in front of them. Sure, it sounds fancy to say "I've been commissioned...." But is it worth the stress? Well, farts and feathers, folks- I sweated this one. I even drove over to the new home of the first painting and held them side by side.
But in the end, I think the second one was better and I delivered to said client to give as a gift to her significant other and hopefully..........I may never know...Why? Why doesn't the client call and let me off the hook???Why I ask you?
