Art has always been a part of my life. I cannot remember a time when I didn’t draw, paint, or create in some way. Art is as necessary as breathing. It just is a part of me.
I love taking commissions, and it isn't for the money.  The stories behind why people want to pay for a picture of their pet are heart warming and sometimes heart breaking.  That being said, I have a question o  how to handle a difficult customer.

I am working on a piece for a lady, ok I have completed a piece for a lady.  Throughout the entire process I sent her pictures.  Pictures of the base sketch.  Pictures of the layout.  Multiple pictures of wip.  Now that the piece is complete she wants to change things.  I have explained that she chose colored pencils and i can't simply color over to change the angle of the ear (which is exactly the angle in the photo she sent).

Do I tell her this is it? Do I give her the option of a start over and take off the guaranteed delivery by Christmas?

I have had picky customers before,  but they were picky throughout the creation. And those pieces are some of my favorites. I've never had someone sigh off on everything then start making changes .
