My friend Robin mentioned recently she was glad to see that I didn't have a problem with getting a commission to look like another painting I'd done previously.

All my galleries and a design firm all wanted The Red Thread. So I was asked if I could make another diptych very similar. Of course, I said yes. Yes, that is if it's okay to make something similar and not an exact duplicate. So I set to work and did this as The Red Thread 2. I realized the color is a little more emphatic than the first one. When I put them up side by side just now, I see that the "sky" is also a lot bluer and this new one is a lot more detailed in the foreground. I like both of them but the first one is a little more subtle and more monochromatic. Hope the design firm likes the second one the way it is since it is "similar". Guess we'll see soon enough.


  1. It'll be interesting to hear what the firm says, but I, for one, love the vibrant colors, and think it's great that you'd be able to do something in the same vein. This one might not seem as subtle, but the growth to a more vibrant coloration might show a subtlety of personal growth that is also beautiful.

  2. wow, flee. I hope the client feels the same way. Thanks for the observations.


  3. I bet the design firm will say wonderful things about your work. At least I would....gotta give you alot of credit. Your pieces are wonderful! You have an amazing way of using colors and the texture in your work is outstanding! *HUGS*

  4. I can sure hope they feel like you and Flee, Angela. Thanks.
