I finally completed the black swan portrait I started last week. At first I was going to paint a white swan...but then I decided to paint a black one. There's something so elegant about black swans. Of course, I'll probably paint a white one sometime soon, too. :)
I'm running behind on my daily paintings at http://www.JaiArt.Com. With the addition of a 3rd job last week and a migraine that got me down for a few days, it was really hard to focus on my main job -- which is my art. I normally worked around 80 hours a week on my paintings and growing my art business. Now it's been cut back to 60 or so hours, plus I'm feeling the stress of it all.
I hope things will balance out soon, but I'm anticipating there will be less paintings completed in April as I get used to my new schedules for everything. And commission works always come first. Speaking of custom pet portraits, remember to get yours scheduled before the 12th, which is when my price increase takes effect!
