A couple from Austin purchased this acrylic painting of mine, and have commissioned a bluebonnet landscape to hang with it.  I thought it would be fun to take you through the commission process with me.  Though I paint more in watercolors, I like doing commissions in acrylic, because then the customer can look at the work-in-process photos and say something like, "Oh.  I was picturing something much lighter."  And I can add layers of paint until it suits.
When I paint with watercolors, usually the painting does not turn out exactly the way even I was picturing it!  But that is part of the fun of watercolors.  They are unpredictable and unforgiving.
