|This was a book which Taryne created the pages for before a bookmaking |
class which Maggie and Leslie from San Antonio taught in Austin... March 2012
|I was lucky enough to sit next to and get to know Taryne by being her|
table mate! She and I got to talking about doing a collaboration of
sorts using her bookmaking skills and my calligraphy.
|When I delivered it to her, completed with lettering to bring it ALIVE, |
I could tell that she was quite pleased and she said she "Loved it".
|It was a fun project and something so personal since Taryne gave |
me certain quotes that were near and dear to her heart.
"Never save something for a special occasion. Everyday in your life is a special occasion."
|Given only minimal direction, I created, what I thought was, |
a tribute to the lettering arts.
|"Courage doesn't always roar, sometimes courage is the|
quiet voice at the end of the day saying 'I will try again tomorrow'".
Mary Anne Radmacher
|The book that Taryne made and gave to me for doing the calligraphy for her....|
|I lettered this on the back page in honor of our collaboration and friendship together|

|Paste Paper Painted background with gouache (Italic) lettering in Burnt Umber|
and illuminated with 24k Gold Leaf and Instacoll sizing
|It's hard to tell in the photos... but in the last two,|
you can see that they were both the same hue and tones.
|Here they both are...together... one on top of the other....|
|They will be framed identically with the same matting and frame...|
and hung on either side of their beds. Can't wait to see them!
