I just received my first art commission! The customer wants a painting of his mother's home in time for Christmas. He emailed me an image of the house so I could analyze the work involved before quoting him a price.
We exchanged emails for about an hour in a question and answer session until I felt I understood what feeling he wanted the painting to portray.
While painting I'll send him images of the work in process, offering him the opportunity to inject his emotions into the piece.
When the painting is finished he'll be the artist while I became the brush that applied the paint.
