New commission

One of the problems with commissions is the poses / themes that clients want - it's very hard to explain to clients why some just won't work. This client left it up to me - it was for a 25th wedding anniversary and I went with a 'lean on me' scenario which they loved. It allows the faces to work well at a good size without having to fall back on the old 'little bodies' scenario.
Looked great framed with the legs and grass extending off under the mat.
This will feature prominently when I finally update my website - which is well overdue and populated with old stuff. Having said that 90% of my work stems from it.

Great composition, Terry! This is a strong pose that I can really see bringing some extra work your way. It's different, without being cheesy or cliche...

Thanks Lash - I thought I'd steer away from the 'hearts & Roses' stuff. It worked that's what it's all about I guess .................

Funny thing is, Tel...before I read your comment below the drawing, I thought to myself "great pose!" I don't think I've seen that before other than photography.

Thanks Jagdish - glad you could drop by.

Cheers Kelly - you're right that's where I found the pose - a photography site - same old themes get a little 'ho hum' don't they ?
