Plant Journal












This is the journal page I created using the gestural calligraphy to which I was recently introduced. The journal's theme is plants so this was perfect for my Lotusland pictures!

  1. Oh my gosh, the calligraphy is beautiful. It looks so easy but when you study it, it is difficult. All those curves and slants. Your work is beautiful and always first class!

    As for collecting dishes in the earthquake belt, well, we have hurricanes here in the gulf coast and tornadoes in the midwest. So I think that disproves the premise that we can't collect dishes based on the natural calamities that may strike the area. The ideal of course is that they are very rare.

    I totally understand the a person's passion for dishes.

  3. Gestsural calligraphy DOES sound hard....(as hard as gestural drawing in a figure class I took). You executed it beautifully! Magnificent.

  4. Good Morning! forgot to tell you, yes, I love Bauer, pricey and not enouh choices but whatever I have I adore! I think dishes remind us of playing when we were little girls with those miniature dishes. Have a great day!
