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.
