November Calendar Page

I was riding in a car for several hours over the last couple of days and I think about my work or design stuff in my head.  I was thinking that I should be putting my calendar pages on my blog so here is November.  Happy November everyone!

Here is something I created recently for a friend's birthday.  She loves this saying and it was fun to surprise her with it.

My Art Career

This is the third in a series of small books.  I must be feeling nostalgic lately because I came across this  little book I made at a Calligraphy Conference with Lisa Englebrecht.  She is a wonderful calligrapher and canvas artist.  This is a small picture of my career as an artist.

Love and Time

Going to try posting another video of a book I made recently.  The book and pages came from a store in the Seattle area called "The Mad Scrapper."  I looked on line for the canvas covers and papers which look like they are still available but you have to be a store to order them.):  ( primamarketinginc.com )
Hope you enjoy!

Don't Pick the Flower

This is a quote from one of my friends.  I loved it so had to letter and illustrate it.  Love is about appreciation.  Yes!

Graphic 45 Birdsong Book

I recently made a little book with my friend Maude.  The book was made using 6 black paper bags from the Celebrate It Collection found at Michaels.  I made a little video of the book showing each page.  I loved making this book and adding the many, many layers.  Mostly I loved spending two days with my friend, Maude.  I am having trouble posting the video so have no idea if this will work or not.  I will post it and see.  It is a silent video.  (:

Even though I have not been posting much lately, I have been so busy in the studio.  I made one hundred sets of "Think Good Thoughts" and for the last month I have been working on an illustrated book for a customer.  A love story of her 50 years of marriage.  So sweet.  I did this prayer today for another customer.  Have a great day!

This is a special order I designed today.  I love the quote.  I had never heard it before.  SO true.

Impeded Stream

This poem came from a friend's blog.  The images and words moved me so that I had to letter it.  I seem to be in that place where I don't know where the journey is going.  Just waiting on the Lord to see where He leads me.

Jeremiah 29:11

This is a new design I just finished today.  It is going to hang in my office and also have some other plans for it as well.  It has a combination of Italic Calligraphy and brush lettering and a splash of watercolor background.  The finished piece is 4 inches by 14 inches, long and skinny.

Scripture Verse

This is a drawing and lettering I did for a new greeting card.  These little flowers are called Agapanthus.  Actually I had never heard of them before but I love the color so thought I would try painting them.  The Scripture verse is from Philippians 1:3-4 but the translation is from the New Jerusalem Bible.  I love the translation of this particular verse with the joy.  Have a great day!
