This is my very first artblog. I once took a calligraphy class from a famous Arizona calligrapher. His name was Dick Beasley, or Beas as he was affectionately called. He used to talk about his work like this. "I don't know if I make letters with pictures or pictures with letters. I always remembered that quote. As a calligrapher and artist, I make pictures with words so that is the title of this blog: pictureswithwords.
