Want to do more of these paintings

These are a type of painting I did a while back, they are labor intensive but I love them, they are done with lines of puffy paint over a painted background to create a shiny yarn effect reminiscent of Mexican yarn art.  They take a long time to do and you really have to work 5 or 6 at a time since the lines have to at least set up a bit before you can go on to lay down more.

One thing I would like to do is have people commission me to do small portraits like the one below

I need to stock up on canvas board and more puffy paint soon.  Also they work best in a smaller format.
