Today felt like my first day at my new job. Yesterday I gave Timothy the portrait of Millie that I painted for his birthday. He loved it so much he posted it on Facebook and I immediately got my first recent commission! So I spent most of today painting.
It was different, I've never spent that much time on art in one day. It felt really good and appropriate. Just right. I am pleased with how the new painting is coming along. I'm about 3/4 finished and it's looking good. It's a dog named Luna, who has already passed on. I'm doing my best to create a likeness that will be a comfort to her human.
I think I'm going to like my new job.
