Well, I did it! I finished my last commission for 2014, as promised. This was no easy task. It's a big one full of hand work; a remake of From Humble Beginnings. A client asked for her own version of it. I said yes... and later I really wondered how on earth I would create that building again!? But I did it! It worked and I am breathing a happy sigh of relief.

I made the first version of this just before my Winnipeg show 2 years ago. One of my favourite people in the world owns it. It was very satisfying to recreate it. It's a little different from the first in both the sky and the foliage. The first version has a darker foreground. This one has a brighter foreground. Of course, I added those fat honey bees that were hanging off the alfalfa where I was kneeling down for the photo. ; )
Now to email her the final results, and then I can ship it to her on Monday. I hope she loves it.
Happy Winter Holidays everyone!
See you on the flipside.
