Painting overload!

 

Now, I love painting, you all know that, but this last month has had me on the annual Christmas rush orders overload and I am definitely looking forward to a break over Christmas. I’ve only had time for my day job and painting. Staying up to midnight and getting up at six  has been the only way to get through all the custom orders – I’m still waking up with only 10 days to go to find hopeful emails from distant lands requesting 2 x 3 ft paintings to be done , shipped and under the tree by Christmas morning! It’s becoming increasingly difficult to find a polite way of saying ” Are you out of your mind!!!!!” Still, I finished the last order I was prepared to take on 2 days ago and only have one small commission for a very fussy customer ( me) to finish off  and I can put away the brushes for a few days. No doubt I’ll be itching to get back into it after the break .

Here’s a peek at all the commissions that will be finding themselves under far flung trees this Christmas. Whilst some of them might not have been my first choice of subject , all of them have real significance for the people who commissioned them.  I’ve enjoyed helping others bring their ideas to life and being part of a very special and thoughtful gift giving experience. My favourite is the prairie sunset…. what’s yours?

  1. Lindy your ability to create is truly astounding!
    It’s really hard to choose , but my personal favourites are “The Beach Walk” and the painting of the Adam’s Hats building.
    So impressive!

    1. I love these two as well. The building was a lot of detail – but I really enjoyed it. I’m a beach girl so that was a joy to paint.
