thanks Oscar i get your point. I guess wot I fear is producing something that is a disapointment to the 'commissioner' and no way to reverse this. I saw a few years back a commission for a local park. It was universally disliked by the public and in the end by those who commissioned it. This would would probably stop me from doing art if that happened to me. I know that some work by famous artists has been initially been 'canned' only later to be aplauded. Do any of you artists out there have provision in your contract where after a deposit is taken the buyer inspects progress at say.. the half way point and then has right of cancelling the deal? I think i may need to take a more business and less emotional approach to this stuff!
