Recently finished this piece - 3 foot x 4 foot wall hanging. I used 24 oz copper and my medium green pitch. It took 120 hours to complete.

I included some progress pics in the mix. I ran out of time to keep taking photos and unfortunately didn't take any shots of close ups prior to the installation because I thought I could get more photos on site. We were limited on time when we installed this so I ran out of time to take more shots. Won't let that happen again.

Two things I learned on this job -

1. ALWAYS plan for time to take good high quality photos before you deliver the piece in case the customer gets funny about you taking photos in and around their home, particularly if you are working with well known people and their people....

2. Come up with a Reproduction/Publication Rights clause that goes into your contract right from the start so there are no misunderstandings about image copyrights, etc.


Otherwise, this was fun stuff!

Thanks! This was my first experience with photo issues - changed some things in my contract to accommodate/clarify that going forward. :)

Thanks! I am definitely kicking myself for letting that one go without more close ups, etc., of the finished piece. Won't do that again...
