Paint To Order...
One group has kept up their interest and finally everything came together for a particular project involving the above painting. They asked if I could paint it on panel in a certain size (slightly smaller than a 4x8 foot sheet of plywood) and asked what my price would be. Well.. I don't deal this way very often but I tossed a fair figure back at them and stated that a non-refundable deposit of about a quarter of the price would be necessary before I began. I forgot about it until a week ago they firmed it up and sent me a check for HALF of my price... their usual procedure, 50% to the artist up front!
WooHoo! This is fun! I've got the panel propped up and several coats of paint building up (including one on the back to prevent warping, hopefully.) Should go well though I haven't had great luck 'copying' my work in the past... probably because I don't want to 'copy' but do a distinct variation on it. This time, it's okay to copy... I said so!
