I found this saying last week on the kitchen wall of my friend, Liz. I fell in love with the quotation and just "had" to do it in calligraphy. Then I added an Origami heart. This last week has felt like the week of uncomforted sorrow but love goes on forever in my heart . . .

One of my really good college friends was another artist named Jim. We edited our Gonzaga yearbook together for two years and then I took over for him after he graduated. 20 years ago, Jim became a Catholic Priest. I designed this heart and cross artwork for him at that time because he is such a loving, giving "heart person" and always sacrifices for others. He is having a great 20th anniversary this summer and wanted to have this Scripture verse as his theme. The translation of this verse comes from the New Jerusalem Bible and I have always loved it. " To act justly, to love tenderly and to walk humbly," what could be better? I thought it might be nice printed on red paper. I think I'm going to try that. Have a great day!

I have always loved this Scripture verse and wanted to do it in a new way. The little words are my italic hand but the larger words are done with a copperplate pen. I have not done copperplate in over a year and I am so rusty! I hope the message is a blessing despite some of the presentation. Happy Sunday.

Good morning! I have been neglecting my blog of late as we moved back to Washington and trying to get my studio in order! Always a formidable task! Thank you so much for all your nice comments on my video and pink tree blogs. I appreciate all of you that take a look and encourage me to keep going. Sending hugs and wishes for a beautiful spring day wherever you are.

I found this quote in one of my file folders that I had cut out of a magazine. It seemed so appropriate for a goodbye card for all my Hawaii friends that I have made this year. Hold on to my hand even when I am far away from you. Love and Aloha.
