The last couple of weeks have been very hectic and I have had to make a lot of adjustments. The upside, and it's a big one, is that I have completed a tremendous amount of work despite the turmoil of moving equipment and supplies to a new studio space.
Wild means something different to each of us. I am open to collaborations with models, stylists, photographers, and women with unique stories or unconventional aesthetics. Help me tell your story.
It's difficult to express how humbling and gratifying to know that a piece of art you created has moved another person so deeply. I have learned so much from this gentleman in our correspondence and partnering for several pieces of artwork over the last few years.
This portrait develops a concept based on the goddess Athena. I narrowed my focus entirely to her face and her relationship to the owl perched on her shoulder. In future renditions of this concept, I hope to refine Cate's facial expression and the details of texture and lighting hinted at in this piece.
My question today is ‘how do you deal with people copying your work?’
As you can see, I am making steady progress on my current commissioned oil painting. At this stage, the imprimatura is completed
As promised, I'm checking in to update you on the studio process and preparation of materials for an oil painting on wood panel.
I recently interviewed a new client about creating a piece of art to hang in a cottage on her property. She is in the process of building an event venue with several amenities, including overnight accommodations in the original homestead on her property.
All non-refundable fees and shipping costs are described in detail below. Fees and deposits are collected in advance of the next step in the commission process in order to compensate the artist for her time and material costs in creating each stage of the commission. All efforts will be made on the part of the artist to ensure that the client's wishes are met through a series of preliminary sketches and in-progress meetings or communications via email, containing images, to insure that the work is progressing as agreed in this contract.
The commission I am currently working on is a large raven painting for a client who lives in Montana part of the year. From the beginning, this has been an exciting project because of the sheer joy my client has brought to the discussion of her work.
