Commissions: People often ask me if I'd work on commission. The answer is, "yes"! Of late, I've discovered that a painting really has to mean something to you. Case in point, most of my commissions are the fun creatures we call our pets. With our mobile society I've also painted people homes. One couple I know who has lived all around the world has a wall filled with their various homes. Another person wanted a favorite view from her backyard when she moved to another state.
