Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
I'm thinking she wanted you to paint her, shall we say, in a state of deshabille! Not kidding on that. Give her a call, see if you can work it out ;-)
No, her friend with her held the baby. He apparently threw up on his clothing and she was removing the clothing and cleaning up the stroller- and as long as his clothes were off, "is he wet too?"
Aside from the crazies and the tremendous dust, all in all it was still a good show and I'll probably go back next year. :)
In addition to other scenes (landscapes, floral, still life, wildlife) I also paint pet portraits. I am typically working on something at each show that we do - and I happened to be working on a commissioned pet portrait at that show. A woman came up and took one of my pet portrait cards complimented my work and told me she and her cousins were wanting to get a piece done for her aunt and that she would call to chat about it further.
A few days later I did actually hear from her and we ironed out the details, size, cost of piece, partial payment etc and that she would email me photos of her Aunt's dog. There was just one thing, she added after we had agreed on all...her aunt wanted the dog to have wings.
"Wings?" I asked.
Yep, the dog had died and her aunt wanted the dog painted with wings. I explained that I was not comfortable with that, I could put in a blue background - and she agreed that would be fine.
I did not get the photos as promised so called and was told they went a different direction.
The lack of wings were apparently a deal breaker. LOL.
I saw this same woman at another show recently and she mentioned to her friend with her that I was the artist they had talked to about the Aunt's dog's portrait. I said I hoped they got what they wanted in their painting and she shared that they finally ended up taking the photo of the dog and photoshopped in some wings on it and the Aunt was thrilled.
Ah well. :)
