Facebook Challenge Day 1
I'm starting with some calligraphic work from the early 1980s. My initial attraction to calligraphy was as a way to interact with words I loved without the analysis that had been required as an English Lit major. Work here is 1) Michel de Montaigne 2) Christina Rossetti (with border lifted from William Morris) 3) Seamus Heaney. The Heaney piece was one of the few I did with ink ground from an ink stick. Mostly I like the immediacy of ink from a bottle.
