I was approached last fall to do my first commission work. I was over the moon with excitment and scared beyond belief that I would not be able to accomplish the task. I had to try though and thought it could be an easy one. So onward I went. I only sketched the canoe and people and filled in the background. The canoe had to be changed in color as green, green, green was not going to be pretty. They were sisters that don't get to see each other often and the husband wanted to remember that day they had so much fun.
