Letters Mingle Souls

I worked on this new canvas for a show at the Orland Library this month called Aphabetica. The photo is before the Letter L was added with the quote "Letters mingle souls thus friends long absent speak" by J. Donne.

Wedding Invitations

I've been working on invitations for my son and his fiance who are getting married August 29th. Two summers ago I lettered my sister's invitations and hand painted the little Rose bud on about 75 of them and also on some of the envelopes I addressed.
This time I'm planning on having the invitation printed on the sheer vellum and have it overlaid on light green paper. I finished the lettering for the invitation and will get them to the printer soon. Found out I'm doing fine with the deadlines -thought I had to have them all done to go out in June, but later in June, so that's good.

Pinecone wreath from the Center

My Mom bought this wreath many many years ago at the Center, probably when they still had their little shop in the log cabin. It's still in great shape and she's enjoyed it for so many years.
