I received my first art commission request in April this year. A friend contacted me to ask a present for his wife, also a dear friend. I was so doubtful of my skills and ability to interpret their vision and incorporate it with mine and my style. The friend it was intended for liked the final painting and even sent me a picture of herself holding the painting.
When I said that I wasn't sure she was going to like it she asked 'Why?'
I was very moved by this vote of confidence.
Thank you for choosing me to interpret 'Venice from the sea'!
