Lettering & calligraphy: pen, ink, paint, brush & digital

Scary Acrylic & ink painting on collaged paper on canvas, 7"x11"

Scary: Acrylic painting, Illustrated lettering of inspirational message by Leah Palmer PreissThis painting has been an adventure in itself. I’d originally created the design around a wonderful quotation, but alas, I was unable to get permission from the writer’s estate, & that took the wind out of my sails for a while. Then it occurred to me that I could make up my own message, so I was back in action! It isn’t as perfect as the original, but it gets the point across.

Just as things were finally rolling again, I┬áhad to put the project on hold for quite some time to finish a massive rush job. Such is the freelance life. But I’ve been able to get back to it at last & I think it’s almost finished! Though I’m considering offering personalized messages in the bottom scroll area where I previously had the author’s name & now have “Enjoy the journey!” Anybody have any ideas?

Do you want voracious bookworms in all your books? Of course you do! My latest Etsy addition is a downloadable digital bookmark based on my library painting, Voracious. The image features one of my very favorite Fleam finds, Cecil’s Book of Insects, 1872.

A new landmark for my sister yesterday: she was able to move her left leg for the first time since her stroke! Go Sarah! :-)
