One of the first illuminated calligraphy pieces I did is this Psalm 1 for my friend. It is executed in marker entirely. Sorry about the poor quality of the photograph.
Being unable to sleep past 4:30am lately has at times been helpful; in this case, for taking pictures of flowers that are just opening for the day. I like the muted light in this photo. By the way, all my photos posted on my site (so far) are taken with my iPad Pro and a lot of them I did not have to edit at all, such as this picture. Pretty good camera, I would say.
Sometimes as Christmas presents for family, I do a calligraphy piece. This one is a wood board originally intended as a picture frame, on which I painted in acrylics and then wrote with a calligraphy marker. My calligraphy isn’t usually perfectly even but then again, I taught myself and rarely practice it unless I have a commission or want to get a present done in time for an occasion.
