Writing allows me to hone in on what I really mean, instead of avoiding it.

acrylic on canvas
Here is the finished commission (custom artwork) I did for the couple that I mentioned here.
They have a beautiful home, but they wanted more color in their living room. Her favorite flower was the Gerbera (gerber?) daisy and I agreed to do a painting of a floral arrangement. I said, since I am doing this just for you, do you want to put some meaning into it? Maybe a letter from a grandmother; photos; a memorable item; a vase? They decided on vases. The tall vase is from his grandmother, (all the way from Ireland) and the lady's head is from her mother.
They loved it!
