|I lettered this to honor my good friend, Jane. RIP dear friend! |
I am breathless by your passing... my loss. What will I do without you!?

|When the bride ordered her wedding invitations, she overlooked the fact|
that she didn't have a return address printed on the back flap of the invite and
on the response card envelopes....
|I guess she thought that the calligrapher would do a couple hundred,|
very tiny writing of the same address, over and over again....
|I chose an acrylic, self inking stamp, but since this was my first time... |
lessons learned, I would have ordered the traditional, wood handled stamp
and inked it myself.... with Colorbox pigment ink. This was an oil
|I think it was largely due to the absorbant envelopes that the impression wasn't as |
crisp as I wanted it to be, because the actual stamp was cut perfectly and very clear.
|Here is the ensemble with my hand lettered envelope on the left.|
|After all these years... I am still learning... and growing.|
|I will now have another item in my stash of treasures to call on if |
I need a stamp for the future.
|We gave a great, local company which does a bulk of stamps and has |
been around for as long as I've lived here.... a long time!

|This is my latest piece for a client who heard this poem read at a |
very close friend's memorial service.... It's very beautiful, by Henry Van Dyke.
|Here it is .. framed and in the happy recipient's home.|
|This is a close up.... |
All done on paste paper.... with gouache for the blue lettering as well
as Copperplate Gold for the gold lettering.
