WORKING ON COMMISSION DURING MY VACATION

in art •  last year  (edited)

While I was in vacation I was asked by a friend of a friend if I was interested in creating commissioned work as an artist. This request seemed like an ultimate compliment for me because so far, I mostly realized paintings for my friends, family members, acquaintances or myself.

I guess it paid off to have realized couples of paintings for free for my friends and have them exposed in their houses and offices! Not bad to have your own artworks displayed on three continents!

Since my friends have praised my skills, when I met the client, I realized he was under the impression I was a sort of celebrity of sorts. I explained to him that this was not my full time job, or at least not for the moment. During the meeting I asked him what he envisioned and what were the colours he had in mind for the five artworks he needed.

He looked at me, smiled and revealed that he loved anything fluid or that gave the idea of flowing. He showed me some sample colours and that was it, contract signed.

Being allowed to create unrestricted by any constraints was a great feeling. I imagine that it will not always be the case to have someone sharing my vision.

When I sent him a photo of the first painting, he seemed to be happy with it. By the moment I was done with all five, he was thrilled. I got myself a new fan, as he mentioned that he will be interested in having more of my artworks next year. Let's hope he won't change his mind!

Here are the five original acrylic commissioned paintings that I realized for this client:

Thanks you! I liked the colours and that it was a two pcs artwork.

LOVE the one with the dandelions seeds!

Thank you! I saw them as butterflies, but now that you mentioned dandelions seeds, I think you're right! heheheh
