My commission is finished!  It is 14x18"  hand drawn, watercolor
I am very happy with the way this has turned out.  The last day of painting has been a joy.  I spent the first week grumbling about it.  Commissions are so hard because you are trying to please a client and make their vision happen.  This client is the craftsman who created the reproduction tea caddy so that needed to be perfect.  I did a full drawing three times until it was correct!  Even after 38 years of painting I still learn something with each commission, they tend to take me out of my comfort zone.
