My first professional venture

Late last month, my friend's husband suddenly asked whether I was ready to take up an assignment. He wanted a painting of a waterfall with all greenery and lots of flowing water...he and his wife being the strong believer in Feng-shui. Knowing the size of the painting, I was apprehensive as I never did something as big as this one(44"x24"). I told him to give me some time to make up my mind. Finally, after a trial painting and thousands of pictures of waterfall I decided to give it a try. I started with the background wash and probably waited for another week to start the main theme...but ultimately, after 15 days of work I finished the painting and called them to show it with crossed fingers. My pain turned into gain when both of them literally jumped with joy after seeing the painting. The otherwise quiet other half of mine too could not hide his amazement....I really thank Raghvan and Shailaja for encouraging and patronising for this......the confidence I gained due to their encouragement is never to be forgotten.
