My First Commission

A friend saw photos of my name banners and has commissioned me to make one for a dear friend of ours.

The colour choice has been difficult. The friend likes wild and wacky colours - orange and lime green together - that sort of thing.

I  found a really wild batik in the stash, but on a white background it would look terrible. So I decided it needed a dark colour to throw it out.


Not too wild about that W, but it will do.

More soon.

When I read earlier that you were planning for a white background, I thought it was going to make it challenging to make those bright, wacky colors pop. I think your blue background really works.

I love your w too! I think the dark blue makes that batik really sing out. Keep going - it all looks great!
