Challenging and fun are my thoughts on painting commissions, especially
When you are not familiar with the people you are painting.
I was recently asked to paint this portrait of a mother and daughter.

The client really wanted to give this portrait as a surprise,
So, how could I not paint this portrait that shows such motherly
Love and adoration.
