It pays to ask.

Sunny morning on Marsh Street, 8x16" oil on panel
Some of you know I spent a good part of my life as an art director/graphic designer. For nineteen years I was self-employed and got used to getting the information from customers necessary to meet their objectives. Commissioned paintings come relatively easy to me now as a result of my graphics background.

Below is the second painting I did at the same address in Beaufort, NC. Sold the oil to someone in Charlotte, NC. Thinking the owner of the house wanted a bigger version, I’m glad now I didn’t go on automatic pilot and do another. He wanted a watercolor, small, and loose. I’m grateful he knew what he wanted. I delivered the watercolor to his Chapel Hill address on Thursday.
