are officially CLOSED.
I know I had mentioned keeping commissions open till Sept 7th. I just don’t think I’ll be able to do it, so I’m just going to go ahead and close now.
I will not be taking on any new commission for the foreseeable future, and I’ll probably be super picky about the projects I accept.
I start my new day job tomorrow. I will need some time to get my brain out of the ‘art for money’ mode, and find my creative voice again, right now she’s MIA.
First paycheck will go toward getting me a new pair of glasses, paying for my website at wix, and getting the cats to the vet for their annual check-ups.
My last show is October 20th – The Wheaton Halloween All Night Flea Market. I’m not sure at this point how many shows I’ll be able to do, or if I’ll even want to do shows anymore once I get sorted with the new job. I’d like to keep doing them, but it all depends on how much new original work I can create while also working 40 hrs/wk.
I created this for a client’s business card because I thought it needed a pop of color over the standard black/white clip art.

I believe this is done. I will let it set over night then look at it with fresh eyes tomorrow. Even though it's for a business card (yeah I could have snagged any old clip art I found online, but, I decided to do my own version.) I will have prints, shirts & merch tomorrow. #art #painting #commission #watercolor #illustration #illustrationart #traditionalart #traditionalartist #comedytragedy #theater #conniefayeart . . Just FYI Commissions are closing in two weeks (Sept 7, 2018), my regulars (you know who you are) I will always have time for you, if you need art email me.
Before Closing – I want to give a special thanks to all of my patrons and clients for their support over the years, it’s been rough, I really appreciate it all.
