It has been a few weeks since I’ve had the chance to work on Canto 7: The Avaricious and the Prodigal. Over the Christmas season I completed over 16 commissions for the holidays. Now that Christmas is here I’m diving back in with the hopes of completing this painting by 2019. I had hoped to finish 10 paintings this year but since I had to take on so many commissions to keep this project and my household going I’m only finishing 2018 with 4. I will, once again, dive back in this year with the hopes of finishing 12 paintings in 2019. Though I have some very large commission pieces in the early part of 2019 I will be working with an apprentice this winter so I am hopeful I can pick up the pace. Here are some photos from December 25 and 26th.
