I'm a bohemian at heart and nothing makes me happier than bartering. Doesn't it feel great when someone makes something for you in exchange for something you make? No money changes hands, just good will. I love it.
This week, I completed two 36x36 canvases for a filmmaker friend in exchange for her services and artistry behind the camera. She made few requests about the commission and only asked that they be bold and colorful. My client's playful nature, boundless curiosity and fun personality inspired these pieces, which are now hanging in her family room. When I delivered the artwork, her pre-school aged daughter asked me to marry her. I took it as a good sign.
