I was recently commissioned to write out these two lovely poems. Kyle gave me an idea as to what he would like to have the borders decorated with and we went from there. When I do these pieces we discuss color, ideas for decorative features, whether the text is to be centered or not, and of course the script to be used. I then design the piece within the parameters given. A grid is worked out using the computer, and the piece may be written out several times to get the preferred layout before writing out the final piece. Any decorative flowers are researched and then painted in rough and applied to the layout before being painted on the final piece.
