Much has happened- I finished a commission. The colors of the sails are the colors of the commissioner's sailboats. It was fun sharing the progress of the project with her. With colors changes we were still able to make the due date.
January was a busy month. New classes - Freeform Stained Glass Necklace as well as older classes- Stained Glass Bracelet and Aluminum Can Earrings Class. My class out at Kinston Community Council for the Arts was great. Actually they have all been great- wonderful students and I love everybody that works there. We did the One Day Mini Panel.
I have been working on a commission since October, waiting for the zinc h came to come in. It is in and I am working hard to wrap it up and get it to the commissioner. He has been extremely patient. We did make some changes to the design and those are progressing along also.
I am so glad I have the Commission Information Sheet to hand to people so they can read what it is like to work with me on a piece. It is their piece and I keep them informed on the progress and often have them come in to see that progress.
I looked back over my past commission pieces and they cover array of styles and purposes. Commission work really pushes an artist to be their best self and to work beside someone else.
If you would like to see what is involved with a commission piece information can be found at my commission page.
Have a wonderful week!
