Cape thingy!

There I was, just kick'n it on the internet...when all of a sudden. BAM!


I become a woman who must have a camel wool trench cape. How does that happen? Like, I am totally not the same person I was pre-cape awareness. Where can I find one folks? She needses her pretty!

  1. I have a question totally unrelated to this post, so to be fair I did a little research on the cape. The one in the photo is by Stella McCartney from a couple seasons ago. I'm guessing maybe you could find one on ebay or something? Here's a better look at it although its no longer available... www.neimanmarcus.com/product.jsp?itemId=prod115320115&ecid=NMSMTB19KS. I tried. sorry dude.

    My question would be better posted to your custom painting post but I'm too impatient to look for it. Have you ever made a custom painting to the specifications of the client in which they loved the end result and you just thought it was..."meh"? Or would you scrap something you didn't absolutely L.O.V.E. yourself and start over?

    1. Thanks for looking for me, you are a sweetie pie.

      Yes, I have created a painting for someone, they loved it, but I thought "I wouldn't hang that in my house, its too bright, or its too dull," or something like that. I have learned that sometimes the things I really love sit around a long time, b/c they aren't colors that a ton of people like. Other times, I paint something that I personally don't really think is as exciting, but I was playing with texture, or shapes or new colors, and someone out there just falls head over heals for it. Its so funny how that happens. If I don't feel good about a painting, I paint over it. I did that last year, my assistant put up a painting that wasn't finished, and I let it sit there for a while, wondering what the response would be. After a few weeks I couldn't stand it anymore, and I painted over it and reposted it. It sold inside of a week. I think that somehow people can tell if I am proud of a painting or not, and they only want it if I love it too. Make sense? I am emailing this to you btw :O

    2. I never got your email but thank you very much for answering my question. I guess sometimes a happy client is more important than creating the masterpiece of a lifetime. I recently struggled with a custom piece really worrying the client wouldn't like it. the colors they wanted me to use were not my normal palette and not my favorite to work with. but in the end they loved their new art. it's definitely harder to work outside your comfort zone and have an opinion about it. lesson learned.

    3. I just typed out a response and then proceeded to lose it. rats. the short of it was that I never got your email but appreciated you answering my question. I think its great that, as an established artist with lots of experience, you take the time to share your knowledge with others. so thank you.
