White on Black

Wedding invitation envelopes. Written with a Gillotte #303 (which are no longer dependable by the way... out of ten I had only one I could get to write) with Dr. Martin's Bleed-proof White.

Your voice, my friend

This is one of my favorite Tagore quotations.
Sumi ink, brush and Brause and Speedball nibs.
Done for Wilma and the Missoula Calligraphers' Guild.
I miss you all!

Pentel brush and sumi ink. Word written and scanned in separately. I layered it onto the drawing and erased the overlap areas.

Wedding Escort Cards

These escort cards were written on Crane's paper (my favorite) in gouache with a Gilotte 303 nib.

the tables were names of cities the couple had visited.

Congratulations, Haley and Shawn!

Butterflies in Ivy

This couple loves butterflies, so I added them into the ivy canopy on their Quaker Wedding Certificate. They are painted in watercolor, with a light wash of irridescent acrylic on the wings.

Congratulations, Elisabeth and Chandler!

But Now I See-3

Working away on this series.... more interested in getting ideas on paper than anything else. Even though I have a lot of work right now, I sneak this time into my day first hour in the morning.
