I've made my second sale this year. Just like my first sale, I create an collage that was commissioned for a family member. The artwork was challenging, yet rewarding. I was able to push myself on a new techinque I learn from Claudine Hellment. She call this type of collage work poppet. Please see her website for more information on this style of artwork ( http://www.collageartist.com/commissions_main.htm#process ).
My client really enjoyed the artwork and was very excited to show her husband. She commented to me that her husband enjoy the work and wanted me to be rewared for efforts ASAP. It's really a joy to have others rewarding you for your efforts and for the things that bring you joy.
