Mantle Commission

A quick funny story.

I was commissioned to build a new mantle by a woman who was renovating her house. The painting and new trim was all finished and my piece was the last one to go in. She was so excited to finally have a "proper mantle shelf" over which she could hang a painting she wanted to display. I didn't ask what the painting was, but as I was packing up my tools I noticed this leaning up in the corner:

She was a prominent woman in town and I thought by taking the job it may lead to more commissions through word of mouth. However, After seeing her painting, I guarantee you when anyone walks into the room, no one will be looking at my mantle.
