And Another One Done.

I finished two paintings that were commissioned.
The client wanted the "Let it go" painting with the cat looking up at a bumblebee recreated.
Exactly the same as the other. I did it,
but it got me thinking about doing "prints".
I'm researching into that a bit.
The client also commissioned a painting with her dogs done in my quick scribble style.
She wanted the little black one to be digging in the yard and looking over his shoulder with his cute little tail showing.

Her German Shorthair is a live wire so she wanted her to be jumping in the air and

her older little terrier mix would be just sitting there doing nothing.

I decided to do something different so I used scrapbook papers and mod podged them to a block of wood that I had painted the sides black.
I scribbled out the dogs and "painted" them with Inktense pencils and then cut them out and mod podged them too.

I'm actually happy with how they turned out. I'd like to do others with quotes.
Maybe small little things that would be easy to hang wherever.
So. I have the commissioned "Collie" to do next.
And then Anne's dogs. Anne are you out there? LOL! I will be emailing you after I'm done with the Collie!
After that, two girls at work want me to do their dogs.
Kinda funny, I mean after I said that I wasn't going to do any more commissions all of sudden everyone wants one.
I'm going to work on "just doing it" and TRY to stop fretting and stressing over it so much.
Sometimes I need to just step out of my own head.
