My old customer e-mailed me to do a commission work.
He talked a lot in his e-mail.
There were so many options to take from his ideas.
I read his e-mail over and over again as designing painting.
He wants a commission of one of his favorite birds, Oystercatcher.
He loves my bird series.
You may find them at http://www.mariko-irie.com/paintingaday.html.
Especially he likes my painting â€œ857. Pacific Reef-Heronâ€.
I got an idea to paint three panels with Oystercatcher with abstract background.
After I painted three which are 1084. Am I late?, 1085. Oystercatcher 2 and 1086. Oystercatcher 3, I e-mailed the images.
He was not quiet happy with â€œ1084. Am I late?â€ original title of which was “1084. Oystercatcher 1”.
He wanted more variety.
So I painted other one â€œ1087. Oystercatcher 1â€
This painting changed this trio paintingsâ€™ story.
This bird added positive humorous attitude, donâ€™t you think?
He loved theseÂ “1085. Oystercatcher 2”, “1086. Oystercatcher 3” and “1087. Oystercatcher 1”
After I finished this series, I realized that I had a great fun with them.
I love “1084. Am I late?” also. It has a great movement.
