      Original post

      I was visiting my Mom at her care home, (everything according to Covid rules), when a worker who had seen the work I'd brought Mom, asked if I would do a black & white  portrait of her and her mom.  I said yes, though I was very nervous--this was my first "commision"!   I had it ready by the next visit and took it and the photo it was based on back.  The lady was thrilled.  And guess what?  She paid me $60.00!!!  I guess I'm a paid artist now.  Maybe it will lead to more work!  Keeping my fingers crossed.  

        That's fantastic, Laura and you certainly deserve it, you're a very talented artist. You should continue that particular endeavor which paid you, and advertise, I think.  Maybe that lady will procure you more work by word of mouth, too.  This should really inspire and motivate you. Your efforts are really appreciated.

          Congratulations, you are very talented!! I’ll be crossing my fingers for you as well. 

            Thanks guys!  I look forward, if nervously, to another commission.
