In the midst of painting all these big canvases and learning to loosen up I had the opportunity to attend a calligraphy class put on by our Warmland Calligraphers group. The wonderful Barbara Close came to visit from California and shared with us her Textured Letters process. So, I found myself with my nose just inches from the page yet again. And, it is very apparent this is my comfort zone. Feels like something I can do with my eyes closed….just SO familiar. Now…if I could only figure out a way to combine the two! Must work on that.
