Completed Portrait

This is the completed and accepted portrait.
When one paints for others, and most especially
when it is a portrait, it is a joint affair. One must
please oneself in terms of one's art goals for the
work, but also one must meet what is wanted
by those who commission you to paint. When
both or all parties are satisfied, it is the most
wonderful thing to be an artist.

Hi Lynne,
I popped in here via Alyson's terrific artbiz blog. I noticed your name in the comment thread and wondered if you could possibly be one of the other "Lynne" local artists. I've seen and been delighted by your artwork although we have not met in person, yet.

I agree with your philosophy regarding commissioned pieces. I like the "moment" caught in this portrait. There's a nice natural feel to your work here.

Thank you 'fellowLynneperson'!
I really appreciate you comments on this work of mine.
I decided to have a giclee done of it so I could show it in its full size and color to others wishing a portrait!
