I was commissioned by an old friend to do two pictures for him and his wife.  They have a small piece from me and are now starting to collect.  They want all three pieces to be nature in theme and be bright and bold.  The first work they bought from me was a 5 x 7" retro flower picture that I often do variations of because they are so popular.  This go round they requested a 6 x 8" and an 8 x 10".  The 6 x 8 was left entirely up to me.  The following pictures are of what I came up with.  I just finished last night.  I am pretty happy with the finished effect.  I used all of the colors that I used in their previous picture plus many additional. I plan on incorporating this element in the third as well.  The couple plan on hanging their collection as a grouping - and while they will all be different in subject and perhaps even stylistically, there will at least be a little similarity amongst them all.  I have sent off photos to him but have year to hear back as to whether or not he likes the work.  I hope it is a yes... then I can get started on the next one Smiley

Here is a photo of the first piece:

Thank you!  Just heard back from him, so now I get to get to work on the larger piece Smiley  I love my job!

They are just awesome, wish I had the patience to make them too. About how long does it take you to make them?
Really beautiful work.

Thank you so much. It does take a lot of patience.  I listen to audiobooks while I work and get two things done at once Smiley  A 6 x 8 takes between 15 - 20 hours depending on the detail.  I have a few larger pictures that have taken more than 120 hours to complete.  I am fortunate because quilling is my full time job, so that is how I find the time.
