I finished some commissioned pieces

I had four people ask me to do some art work for them and I created the work but so far I'm still waiting on approval on several before I finish them up.
Once again, many have NOT gotten back to me.
But fortunately ONE has approved and prepaid me and another,
I'm still working on.
I'm not fond of doing commissions but since these do not have the names of the pets in the photo or anything that would make them personalized to a specific person, I'm not going to get upset about it.
If they don't contact me. I will just put them up for sale at the clinic or at the Art/Antique place where I have a space.
So here's what I've created -
And in another style - 
And for another person-
Then I did them in a linen look -
Which do you prefer?
I have my personal favorite but some people seem to like the other.

Finally, I did this one.
She requested a White German Shepherd.
The other dog prints were of dogs that they brought in and I photographed.
This is made from a photo I had saved on my old laptop. -

I'm not even sure who it is but I have an idea.
Anyway the woman approved it via iPhone and even stopped in and paid me!

Then the other day, I had another woman requested one of her dog, using her own photo.
I think I should be able to do it.
She said she'd pay me whatever I wanted.
I quoted my usual price and she was shocked.
She said she would have paid much more!
But the finished pieces are actually prints mounted on canvases.
If they were originals, I would charge more!
Right now I'm viewing this as a learning process.
Most times the money I make, I just invest it back into buying more art supplies.
Although I do use some of it to buy Blue's food too!
I've got a lot of ideas rolling around in my head, so everything's good.
