Working on a new style . . . upright copperplate.
On the letter 'K' - half way done on the Christmas card list.
Ordered my postage on the USPS website, 7 days and counting.
Interesting that the service is a bit slow.
But I am all for supporting our USPS - still love snail mail!
Time to get the Christmas cards in the mail . . . a great opportunity to try out different nibs, new bottle of ink and a free form style. Going rogue . . . no lines no planning.
Thought this one would make Patrice smile, other than I spelled her name wrong :( Think I can blame it on auto correct?
After being inspired by Julie Grey & Carl Rohrs, I finally tried my hand at cutting out lettering design. The scan is a bit blurring since it was not sitting directly on the glass. Looking forward to creating more pieces like this one.

In just 2 weeks I will be spending the weekend demonstrating the art of calligraphy at an annual Art on Main event. I have completed the chalkboard that will be at my artist space in
downtown Hendersonville, NC.
Here are the steps as the board took shape:
|2) sketch in layout with light chalk pencil then begin to chalk over|
|3) continue to work . . .|
|4) easy to erase problem areas and redo the sign.||I did not like the spacing on the feather||.|
|4) all done.|
These paintings are a great, modern twist on the formal guestbook. The guests sign right on the painting. The finished projects gives the couple a wonderful piece of art for their home. Each painting is custom crafted for the couple.
