Ha, betcha thought I was going to write about my siblings...NOPE! Finished the kitties and called it:
8X10 oil on senso linen canvas
Just after I posted this little gem on my Facebook page a guy I went to high school with contacted me. Now I never talked to the guy in high school, especially sense he was two years ahead of me, but I was kind of excited. I know 40+ years ago...yada, yada, yada. Anyway, he wanted to know if I could paint a portrait of his son in his football uniform, a LARGE one and how much. I said sure and quoted from $300-450. Here is part of his response: I said yes of course it would.
"Whoa ok, give me sometime, I just thought of something crazy not that I'm cheap lol would a b/w portrait look good"
I said yes of course it would, not that the price would change because it is the time spent on the project.
"Oh ok I see now its the time, ok well, this is something that just came to my mind lets stay in touch can you give me an estimate"
don't be discouraged. It's time, paint, canvas all factors to make it come out right. Especially for a portrait painting, can take hours and hours of time. Please keep in touch. Thanks for the consideration.
"Ok thanks for giving me some of your time out of your busy day, and happy New year"
Now, how should I take that? Was he being nice? I hope so but another person might kind of take it like snotty! I choose to say he is a nice guy, right! Hahahaha...Guess I'm not doing a portrait for commission.
