This week I'm handing over 5 commissions .... this is both traumatic and delightful. By the time I've spent hours on a piece, mounting and framing it, finishing by wrapping it up for the client, I can only see the things that aren't quite perfect, so it's a joy when my customers see the piece for what it is - a thoughtful piece created just for them, with the best skills I can bring to it.
Last night I delivered 2 pieces to a lady who said that one piece made her feel "bleargh" - which appararently was a very good thing meaning the piece had moved her! (Thank goodness - as that's not how I would have interpreted the word "bleargh" !!)
Most pieces are for Christmas so I can't post pictures yet - will add them as soon as I can.
