Commissions Can be Sticky

Commissions can be sticky, to say the least. 
I usually regret it, every time I agree to do one. 
Painting something someone else has in mind,
 kind of takes the wind out of my sails. 

But this one, I actually enjoyed doing! 
It is to be a gift for a woman who was a member 
of my garden club years ago. 
Her daughter saw this one of mine: 
Garden Club Meeting 
8 x 10 

at a mutual friend's house 
and asked me to do one like it.
Garden Tour 
8 x 10 

I included daffodils, orange day lilies, and gladiolas
(even though they are never in bloom at the same time)
because those are her Mom's favorite flowers.  


  1. nice work, nancy - love how you simplified all that foliage. luscious!

  2. These paintings are wonderful--love all the colors.
