This commission was for a great friend. She wanted the words of two meaningful songs writing out together. Having looked at it, I really felt I did not have the skill to do both songs justice if they were together in a piece. Tentatively I asked her if she'd like to choose one of the songe to be "the piece". She's a lady that knows her mind, and it was both she wanted, so she asked for 2 pieces instead! We talked a little about how it might look, but it was really left to me, with a strong steer to the colour purple!
In the end the 2 pieces are quite different (even in size) but my friend was delighted, and that's what it's all about!
Photography still not good - the white lettering is very crisp in real life. Still learning!
