An uncommon request from a customer

Most people, if it is a group photo want something appreciate them as well as a pet, or them as well as a family member, however this guy wanted me to paint as well as recreate a photo of him hugging his heating as well as cooling system.

I have been laboring professionally as an artist since my early twenties, but my speciality is painting, oil painting to be particular as well as I find pleasure in painting peoples portraits, and this is the most respected request I get, however just Last monthI got a absolutely odd request from a customer… He didn’t want just a picture of himself with his Heating and A/C unit. Most people, if it is a group photo want something appreciate them as well as a pet, or them as well as a family member, however this guy wanted me to paint as well as recreate a photo of him hugging his heating as well as cooling system. He explained to me all the details he wanted in the picture, as well as he even had his Heating and A/C system removed so that it could be brought inside as well as I could paint from life. He hugged it just appreciate in the picture as well as told me to make sure I got all the pretty angles of the air conditioning as well as while he posed for the picture he started telling me stories about his oil furnace as well as how faithful it was to him, as well as how great it was at keeping him warm, i listened for a while but he lost me when he told me about how he dressed up his Heating and A/C unit for halloween to startle away the kids that were out trick or treating. I was absolutely much weirded out however did finish the painting for him. It was an unrespected afternoon, a single I will not forget anytime soon, and don’t get me wrong, Heating and A/C technology is great as well as all however this guy was just strange.
