More Peonies and Some Calligraphy











More peonies--I can't get enough of them. I think they are my very favorite flower.

Our world is marred by trouble at every turn it seems but it is still a beautiful and wonderful one.  Help me look for the beauty today.


This is a piece I started this past weekend at a Julie Wildman workshop.  I finished it on Monday of this week.

We were supposed to bring quotes that we wanted to calligraph but as I walked in and heard this song playing, I knew I wanted to illustrate it.  I used watercolor inks, walnut ink, PearlEx powdered pigments, gesso and a parallel pen.

The verse I have on my heart today is Psalm 143:8--


Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love........
