Lockdown Commission

oil painting portrait commission

The Covid pandemic has been so very disruptive to my art practice, with commissions postponed, exhibitions cancelled, and my studio closed down for months.
But this particular commission was the exception, as it came my way because of the pandemic. A group of friends struggled to think of an interesting birthday present for their housemate, when the usual “experience” gifts are somewhat limited with covid restrictions. So what better gift can you give someone than a commissioned portrait đŸ™‚
