A Successful Commission

The other day I was in my framers and she asked me if I had any paintngs that went with this piece of drapery. It was for a childs room and had a yellow background with a pony and some flowers in red and yellow. It was a naples yellow and hard to match. So I took it home and found I didnt have any thing that would go with it. So I tried to paint something that would match the piece. The first try, just didnt suit me. So I did another painting and felt it went well with the material. So I took it back to the framers and she talked with the designer. They liked it and so did the lady who wanted it. So, I was happy about it. Thought you would like to see the painting. I think that commissions are sorta hard to do, but I like the challenge. I think it will look good in a child's room. What do you think? It is a mixed media painting, with watercolor, acrylic and collage.
