The genie's out of the bag

Okay, first off, I did not intentionally mangle the metaphor for this post's title. I realized after the fact. I have a standing order for a commissioned painting. The specifics were left open, other than a preference for certain colors, and a light unusual landscape. It sounded so straightforward, but I've been workin within frameworks so much lately. They are loose frameworks, but still, I rarely paint on the wide open ranges now.
I'm finding it difficult to stay on task with this commission. I'll switch over to acrylics, and maybe even follow a sketch. In the mean time, it's really been a blast to forage like this. I miss it.

Kincade channels Whistler and makes a sci-fi poster.



All are in progress.

are these the foraging or are these commissions? Can't quite understand. These are luscious, luscious.

Gorgeous, Carla!

Thanks.
I went completely off track mentally from the commission mind-set, so these are foragings. I'm going to try to do something more directed for the commission.

Number four is crazy. So great to see those saccharine colors look almost sinister.
