Latest Commissions

Pear Mail Encaustic
Oh - doesn't that sound nice: "Latest Commissions". My friend asked for a few more of the "Pear Mail" series. I made a few as gifts as well. (Jenny? Raegan?)

Of course, once I received a request and a deadline, I went into resistance mode. I put it off as long as I could.

Pear Mail Encaustic

The story of my life.

The same thing happened with crochet. My niece asked for a scarf made from yarn she chose. I had to make her a hat, scarf and gloves from yarn I picked out before I could get around to making the one she wanted. Of course, don't even get me started with my regular work.

The scarf and hat colors I chose.

They're both nice. Both easy.

I can't be the only person who has resistance issues. Anyone else have any stories? Remedies?
