I'm working on a custom piece for a lovely woman based on a sweet 'butterfly' poem that her young daughter brought home for her. Although I thought the butterflies would be easy, they turned out to be quite a challenge. I tried numerous incarnations, and finally have it figured out...the number of broken wings littering my studio is staggering....ok, so staggering is a BIT of an exageration:). I will definitely use some on future pieces, and am even thinking of placing one hovering above the flowers in 'Summer of '69'.
Once the piece is safely in the hands of it's owner, I will post a photo and the story. I don't like for the world (my little blog world:)) to see custom pieces before they reach their permanent homes.
