Yep that's what's been happening with me lately. Art get's put to the back of the want/need list, when I'm working 5 days a week, with 2 children, a dog and a husband and not necessarily in that order either ;-).
But I have been working for 2 months on the painting below (off and on) for a friend of mine who has just recently opened a hair dressing salon in town from her home.
I was completely thrilled and blown away that she liked my work enough to ask me to do a painting for her.
anyway here it is - titled "Teigans Place".
