Painting and Poem

I did this for my friend
Judy and used one of her
favorite poems by Emily
Dickinson. The prominent
calligraphy is the most
known verse of the poem
but I also incorporated
verses two and three.
I used gouache, acrylics,
brushes, sponges and
calligraphy pens.


  1. I am LUVIN" this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Happy New Year, Lisa!!

  2. This is lovely, Lisa! You are really getting the hang of adding depth to your layers.

  3. This is great Lisa...wonderful colors and texture.

  4. This reminds me of a thick forest with just a few sparkles of light getting though to illuminate the words - just beautiful, Lisa!

  5. I'm really impressed that you can write that script onto layers of paint. I have a horrible job doing it on wood with a brush instead of my calligraphy pens! Well done you - it's exquisite!

  6. Gosh, this is gorgeous. I made it bigger so I could drool over your writing! Beautiful colors too! Hugs, ;)

  7. That is gorgeous, Lisa! I love your calligraphy as much as I do the background you created for it. A great piece of art!! Hugs, Silke

  8. Oh Lisa, I think you are so very talented! Beautiful. I mean just look at this piece! Again, I could stare at it all day. Boy, Ms. Emily Dickinson is one creative chic :). One of my customers loved that quote so much (and pink gerber daisies), it was a treat to paint this:

    Pretty neat to see how different we interpreted the same quote.

  9. You create the best lettered objects of any kind. My holiday greeting card from you was the most beautiful of all the cards. Thank you. Lisa, your calligraphy is a constant reminder of the beautiful things in life. Happy New Year dear Lisa, may it be prosperous, healthy and peaceful!

  10. Just gorgeous!!! Don't you just love working on canvas. :-) Happy New Year Lisa

  11. i am crazy in love with this, i'm sure your friend judy is too!!!!
    wishing you much happiness and creativity for 2010!! hugs, ;))
