Anatomy of a F#cked-up Commission!

This is a private commission that has gone into limbo. the well-meaning JERK who started this mess has stopped paying me and I have no idea if or when he will ever do so. Recently he promised me a large payment but on the day he cut it back by 25%. Having payed only a bit more than half of the total price but I needed the $$$ bad so I said okay. Then he says he wants to pick up the painting immediately! We agreed many months ago that he would not get it 'til it was paid in full. Plus it's not quite done. he freaked out on the phone, made some half-assed excuse about calling his mom or some crap and hung up. I have not heard from him since.

The lesson? NEVER START A JOB UNLESS YOU GET HALF THE MONEY IN ADVANCE!!! IT'S JUST NOT WORTH IT! This is acrylic on canvas, 30x40".
