A Focus on Light



This is a commission I did for a friend who has a love of ballet; she and I used to dance together as kids. She watches performances at the War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco. Their chandelier can downright distract you from watching the show.
I realized that painting commissions are a lot more challenging than painting strictly for myself, which is what I normally do. It didn't matter if it made me happy- I was constantly hoping that my client would like it. What if she didn't? This feeling hung over me quite a bit of the time. Still, I love new challenges, and this one gave me some good ones.
