I recently completed a commission for a business near the Broadway Bridge, here in Portland. The bridge dominates the view from their office and they wanted a painting of it to use in promotional materials, etc.
I don’t like to do commissions and I know nothing about graphic design but I like the bridge and welcomed the opportunity to paint it again so I accepted. I also have no process for commissions. When I met with the client to talk about the painting, I never asked how large the work should be and totally forgot to talk about prices. I ended up doing two paintings for them and they selected one. This is the other. The client was very kind and accepting of my lack of professionalism, with regard to commissions. Still, I’m reluctant to take on any more commissions.
