As I had suspected, and now know to be true, the costumers seem to prefer "touchy-feely" images. What's touchy-feely and doesn't involve cherubs? Plants!
This latest one features Chinese Lanterns (Physalis alkekengi (not to be confused with syphilis)). These were a ton easier than that rose (it still haunts me). I think my next one will feature cats. Cause, really, plants can only be endearing for so long.
Side note: I did not intend to offend any of you supportive customers. If offense was taken, I am truly sorry. This is a work of fiction and any resemblance to persons dead or alive is pure coincidence.
(How close am I?)
