I am working on a commission in Bristol this week, and today was my first day installing the piece. Went well, and tomorrow I will be putting in the ship and hopefully getting it near completion.
The nice thing about being an artist is that generally people are very interested in what you are doing, so all day I have had different people coming up and chatting to me about the work and being very encouraging. Even the poor caretakers who had to move a cupboard that had been bolted to the wall because of some miscommunication were very kind. It would have obscured the painting, but now it is fine.
