I am not very good at taking commissions but I am trying to be more professional about it. I have to accept that people will want to order watercolours that are personal to them and not me. This painting of a house in Ploubazlanec in Brittany, France is a good example. It is not my dream house but it is special to my client who ordered it.
You can also see my new studio layout. I have have placed a screen over my desk which makes sketching from photographic references much easier as it is right in front of me now.

I like the way you take commissions, a real good one although you don´t like the house, I would´t care ownnig one like this one. A very good idea putting the screen in front of you, well done. Your new studio looks very nice, inviting to paint, I´m sure you´ll enjoy it a lot and make us enjoy your art.
I have just been given a new commission to paint a still life and a typical French breakfast is the theme. I spent yesterday afternoon taking photographs of croissants and fruits etc. I will paint it when I get back to Stockholm. Should be fun to do, I haven’t painted so many still lifes when I think about it.
