Calligraphic Painting
















This is the last of the paintings I did for holiday gifts. This one went to my friend Lisa. I used a beautiful poem that my friend Manon used on her blog. I was a bit nervous giving it to Lisa because she is an avid art collector and I wasn't sure I could create a piece that suited her taste. She liked it!!

  2. This is a real beauty. Love the shaft of light at the top and how the heart leads my eye down to the lovely poem. Also like the textures and in the way you wrote with the end of your brush (?).

  6. Thank you Ces! So glad your family enjoyed my card. Pam, I didn't even think about the heart leading the eye to the words, but now that you mention it! I used a regular edged calligraphy nib for the writing. Thank you Wildman Designs ( do I even know your real name?!) and Bea. Manon, I love hearts too and you inspired me to put them in my art : )
