Another interesting commission...

Client wanted very specific style and color. This turned out to be more time intensive than first calculated. I am so grateful the client was very patient with me.

That'll teach me to not underestimate a project again ....

You really are multi-talented., Sheila.
I'm forever underestimating commissions. Pricing is tough.

Charlene Brown said...

I love that sort of cloisonné style of painting, and think you have done it brilliantly.

Very cool Sheila! That's a big one too.

Hellenne Vermillion said...

This reminds me of stained glass, Sheila. A fine job you have done here, truly. I am sure your client was very pleased with this!

Carol Schiff Studio said...

Sweet and congratulations on all the commissions.

As soon as I start a comission, I tighten up, therefore it takes me 3 times as long as I estimated. Is that what happened to you?

Kathy said...

Nice job, Sheila! Looks like a beautiful stained glass. Commissions are tough, but I'll bet they loved this one :)

Dean H. said...

Wow, Sheila! Beautiful...look like stained glass. Hope you charged enough!

Lauren Maurer said...

Wow you are really cranking out the commissions latley! This is so great- I do love the style of it! You are so flexible! Everything you try looks great!

suzanneberry said...

WOW!!! I just love this, the graphic quality is so inviting, great color. Is this the largest you've done? I get so overwhelmed by large canvases. Great job Sheila!

Gary Keimig said...

You continue to amaze me Sheila. The way you can jump around in styles and technique is a true art form in itself. Great job.

I am so proud for you getting commissions again and again.
You deserve it girlfriend.

Kathleen Krucoff said...

Your commissions provide a great variety in your work and style. You truly have a wonderful gift Sheila!

Edward Burton said...

Very cool, Sheila. Congratulations on the commission!

Marie Theron said...

You are an excellent designer, Sheila! The talent to organise your positive and negative spaces has problably always been there, underlying all your work. When I saw this painting, I also thought: this will make a wonderful oversized mural!

Fantastic Sheila - what a great painting!

Eva said...

I think the nicest thing about retirement is not doing commissions! I hope your client was happy as looks good to me!

Dean Grey said...

This looks very graphic and fun, Sheila!

I love the bold black lines in this painting.

It's good to streeeeeeetch! Looks like you did. Ha, anyway it's another style that you can offer, right? You and your blog are ALWAYS interesting, Sheila.

Lokelani Forrest said...

Sheila...what a wonderful painting. Looks abstract, but couldn't be because it is very obvious as to what it is. Wonderful bold colors. Love it.

Celeste Bergin said...

Your painting reminds me of an antique Hawaiian fabric that my husband owns. I guess it hung at his house when he was growing up..It has stylized shapes in it just like your painting. I bet the people who asked you to paint this are happy!

Stephen Dell'Aria said...

Wow! This is really nice. reminds of a Robert Gwathmey painting.

DEB said...

Shelia, I think everything you paint is magic. I have to laugh though, because I feel the same way with every commission. I've not had a dissatisfied client in 30 yrs., and yet I always dread the moment when they first see the finished piece - especially the "picky" ones!

Elizabeth Chapman said...

I love this simplification and the contrast of patterns in this painting. You are doing great!!!
