I have been working on the face and eyes, hair and boat rail.
I can see that this is going to take some time before I have the right expression.
Here is the final art piece for this commission. I think it has turned out very nice. The daughters poem worked out well on the space of the flower pot. The mothers name makes the leaves on the plant and she choose symbols that were meaningful for her.

Come along with me I invite you to watch as I paint my new Commission of the "Name Plant". People commission artwork for many reasons but mostly in honor of something they feel very connected to.
A portrait of someone they love, an animal who was loyal or to celebrate something that they have achieved.
This "Name Plant" is a daughters tribute to her mother who just recently got the news she has breast cancer.
The daughter wrote her mother a poem. The mother wanted to honor her daughter and commissioned a painting that would offer her inspiration.
Everything was picked out personally and each symbol represents deep meaning to both the mother and daughter.
As I said earlier, when you order a "Name Plant" I will send you a few simple questions to answer so we can work together to make this painting unique and original for you.
In this piece the special poem will be painted on the flowerpot, ladybugs represent a very special meaning of friendship to the mother, along with the Pink Ribbon for Breast Cancer, she picked a star and a dragonfly.
