Three Sisters

Three Sisters
I posted a new painting in my Etsy shop yesterday.

I finished this piece a few weeks ago, but I haven't had a chance to photograph it and list it until yesterday.
I like how this painting turned out. I love the collage peeking out of the white, and I am very happy with how soft the feathers look.

I started a commission piece yesterday. I was contacted by a woman with two friends who are getting married and who are also farmers. She requested a painting in the style of American Gothic by Grant Wood. I was very apprehensive about doing this piece. I've never done a commission with people, and it's also much larger than I am used to. The size is 18x20", making it a bit intimidating. It took me about 2 hours yesterday just drawing it out, and making sure the dimensions were correct. So far I'm pretty happy with the drawing. I'm going to start painting on Thursday, so hopefully I'll have something interesting to share.

I thought it was time to take a leap, to take a risk, and to take on a challenge. I hope it was the right choice! We shall see....

Lovely feather composition, and look forward to more on your American Gothic styled commission!
