Just a quick post about a painting I recently got commissioned for. A very nice chap contacted me a few weeks ago to do a painting of his lovely house in Essex so he could give it as a present to his fiancee in time for Christmas. I was very excited by the project and managed to finish it on time (just! - my last brush strokes were done at 2am before the delivery day!), and although it has been done from photographs, I hope I have managed to convey the feel of the place. I'm happy with it and the owners are happy too so it was a great way to finish the year on a high!
