Art Process: Grey Scale Mountains Commission

Image of completed mountain landscape with title and Commission Requirements checklist: Semi-Abstract Mountains, Grey-Scale, Just Landscape (No Animals)
"Grey-Scale Mountains" was my first commission piece and I painted it in March of this year. It made a great first commission project because the requirements were simple; they wanted a semi-abstract mountain landscape to fit the space above their headboard in the master bedroom. They also wanted it to be a grey-scale piece and requested that I keep the landscape free of wildlife.

Vary Niche Beginnings: Blog Set-Up

Every business these days seems to need a blog. When I started Vary Niche, I thought my business was going to revolve around my blog. It revolves around my art now, but I learned a lot in the process of setting it up so thought I'd share. This isn't a technical how-to guide; it is a conceptual where-to-start guide with links to some of the technical articles I found helpful.
