Portrait of a beach babe

I recently finished painting this custom portrait
of a little girl sitting on the shore of Lake Michigan that was
cut into thirds, and adhered to 3 natural wood blocks.  The portrait triptych is now ready to be shipped to a happy mom who sent me this message after seeing an image of the finished portrait ~ "It's beautiful! I'm so excited! We are up at our lake house now and I feel like I should pose my son tomorrow on the beach so he's not left out! It's great and I can't wait to receive it! Thanks again.. "
Yea!  I'm always a little nervous when painting a custom portrait so it's wonderful to receive positive feedback from a delighted recipient!  I wonder if all artists feel this way when creating custom pieces, or if it's just me?!  What do you think?
