Calligraphy Practice

Lately for fun, I have practiced with actual calligraphy pens... creating some samples for  addressed invitations.  This is a modified but traditional Italic hand below.

This practice may come in handy one day with some events on the horizon.  
I hope to add some new, more original and modern hands soon to my sample collection.

I enjoy hand-lettering with inspirational words as an embellishment to my watercolor floral series.  I usually create those letters by pencil sketch and then add the ink with layers of fine pens.  My goal is to get this "hand" represented below in my sample collection soon because this style would work well as table cards.

Illustration Friday: Tattoo

The Union Jack I proudly bear Emblazoned in my bulldog hair. A tribute to a fearsome man: Dear Winston, 'twas your sturdy plan That broke the chains of tyranny. How I desire to honor thee.

IF: Trail

A few years ago, I did this pastel painting of this "watery trail:" the Intracoastal Waterway off the NC Coast. I love the IW, and those who are fortunate enough to have spent time boating on it know how it can draw you into its magic.

IF: Skyline

This is not exactly a skyline, but it is a view from far below the steeple of First Presbyterian Church of Charleston, SC . We had an exquisite trip there on a gorgeous April weekend -- lots of inspirational painting ideas. Sorry this is a late post this week!
