The pressure has been on! All she said was that she wanted something to 'match' her decor which is in browns, reds and off white. When I asked for some direction in subject matter she replied that she liked landscapes. Well, I'm not a landscape painter, so I've gone with a pattern I've used for my screenprints - just elaborated.
I've used old music sheets for collage as she used to be in a marching band when we were at school together, and I thought that it seemed appropriate. I'm a bit nervous about showing her though as it ain't no landscape!
Most importantly I have enjoyed doing it. Better make sure I use that gym membership.
