I finally completed a commission today – this has been 3 months in the making. I was selected along with 12 other local artists by the village of Shorewood, WI for a neighborhood beautification project.

Artists who have been working for any length of time will eventually run into an issue with storage. Art supplies, sketches, half finished work, and unsold work – it’s a lot of stuff all needing careful handling.

Just met with my client last evening to hand over the finished “Portrait of Lady” – and today I get this great photo of Lady and the portrait meeting in real life! Doesn’t get much better than that! Thank you Jonathan and Lady!
