My First Public Commission!
My first public commission! Sounds a bit grand doesn’t it? But there it is.
Yesterday I was beside myself with excitement. Today I’m “yeah, whatever”! But secretly excited, nervous, astounded . . . a bit in shock I think.
Here’s how it happened . . .
I created a Facebook page after years of putting it off: Gillian Pearce Art
Unknown person but soon to be first public client takes Yoga class and hears a quote she likes.
Arrives home and decides to look it up on the internet. Finds this site, likes my paintings then finds Facebook page (no idea how that works). Leaves a message on FB asking if I could paint a picture using the quote she likes in the style of a couple of other paintings on the site that have different quotes.
Wow! What? Wow!
Painting begins . . .
. . . and that’s What’s On My Workdesk (this) Wednesday.
Pretty cool, eh?
