Lately I have only had snippets of time to do my art and haven’t posted much because I feel like I have to have something finished or at least impressive enough to share. But many people enjoy seeing things in progress. Here is a new calligraphy piece, a quote by Socrates, that I am working on in my Procreate app, a drawing app designed just for the iPad Pro. I plan to do an elaborate painted border in shades of blue and orange and green. The script is Roman Capitals that I thought fit in with the classical origin of the quote and yes, I know Socrates was Greek but you know what I mean. I’ll post again soon (I hope) with the finished product.

Celtic Blessing Illuminated Calligraphy

Lately I have been trying to make some more Scottish themed illuminated calligraphy and decided to write out this Celtic blessing in the Artificial Uncial script. The Celtic knots here are identical, but are rotated in different directions for a nice contrast. It took a long time but I am happy with the result.

Here’s the text, which I think is wonderful: “May you have: walls for the wind, a roof for the rain, and drinks by the fire; laughter to cheer you, those you love near you and all that your heart may desire.”

Enjoy and I hope you have some laughter and warmth today.
