A Finished Project: and I got paid! Woohoo!

A while back I had a post called Straight Lines.  It was about how much I struggle with straight lines, especially when painting. I prefer flowy and out of the boundaries kind of lines.
It was a project I was commissioned for and I finally finished it.  It is now hanging up in the business in town, for all to see.  It's very exciting.  And, he wants me to do one more painting to add to this, on another wall.
Anyway, here it is.  He asked if I could paint some of the historical buildings from our town, kind of like a skyline with more details.

Have a lovely day!


  1. Awesome!! Nothing like getting paid for something you love to do. :)

    And I think your straight lines are great. :)
