"100 SLC Porches, No.92"

I want to wish everyone a very Happy Thankgiving!  I'm hoping to get some more porch paintings done over the long holiday weekend.  But in meanwhile, here's the latest porch painting...
"100 Salt Lake City Porches, No.92"; Oil on 8" x 10" Canvas.
This house is a cute cottage up in the Avenues area of Salt Lake City.  This painting is a commissioned piece.  It's for a friend and its her bosses' house.  She's giving it as a Christmas present; a neat idea.  I sent her a picture last night via text and received a "Wow. Absolutely spectacular".  So I'm figuring she liked it. :)  I'm starting to feel a little more comfortable with doing commissioned work.  I know its part of being a successful artist but I sometimes still struggle with the concept of someone wanting to pay me to paint something for them.  I guess its because I feel I'm still struggling (the eternal struggle) to be a good artist.  To view the progress of the 100 Salt Lake City Porches (or to purchase one of ), click here.  Thank you for visiting and I welcome any feedback you may have.
