After I made my Mother's Day message for the vase of flowers a few weeks ago, I had diluted Dr. Ph. Martin's white to use up and did a small series of quotes. I now try to apply the approach that I have with the Spirit Books—no sketch, no plan, just an organic evolution—to all my work. With lettering, the pen, the paper, the ink, and my mood lead to the style of writing. It's always (well, almost always) a treat to see what comes forward.
to my online studio and journal where I share my love of making books, my art, and my thoughts on the creative process and the artist's life. Your comments are most welcome here and by email: susan(at)susangaylord.com.
