My 1st Etsy Sale!

There has been a lot of action this past month. The most exciting was my first Etsy sale! A shopper wanted a custom painting of a Weeping Willow for their fireplace at home. What made this request so unique was that six different versions from six different artists were wanted. Each artist would give a different perspective and I thought that was a cool idea. Well, I was one of the chosen artists! Yay, me!! I matched the colors with the photo references of the mantle piece, did a little research and it came out beautifully. My client was happy, and couldn't wait to hang it. I wish I could see the final vision. What do you think?

In other news, Ashton Atelier has been featured several times in other articles, and a few more are upcoming. One of my paintings even made it to a Top 10 list, and that made its popularity skyrocket! Not bad for its first month.
