My very first commission

I'm over the moon!
A lovely friend of mine asked me to paint for her.
I can't believe this is for real.
But I LOVE to paint,
so I am giving it my best.
With every stroke I think about how much I'm enjoying it,
and I think of her cute and beautiful kids,
and I think of my friend, of course;
how during our first few conversations
I kept thinking: Yes! Exactly! Where have you been all my life?

Here are the first few layers.
Love how the metallic paint shows through.

Below are a few sketches in my journal before attempting it for real ...

And here is where it is now.

Thank you Z,
for this opportunity!
As Jasmine would say: it rhymes,
so what I am saying is really is true :-)
(Random. I know.)
