My Voice

One of my new year's resolutions is to do more calligraphy---and not to stress about it too much. No lines, no layout, just write. This Scripture spoke to me today so I decided to write it. I will try and do more of that---hopefully. I haven't even pasted anything down, in fact there is something painted on the back of the paper. Writing on the back of scrap paper is freeing for some reason. Lack of self confidence?---probably---fear of failure?... probably. Yeah, I know, I'm a little bit crazy that way.

This is beautiful Martha! Will you leave it the way that it is right now?

Doda said...

I second that ! Leave it as it is .
I know what you mean, sometimes something I have done loosely turns out so much better than when I fuss and over work it.

We are our own worst critics. Its so hard to let go of those little voices sometimes. Your work is so colorful and pretty. Trust in what you do and remember sometimes those ooops lead to wonderful results.

And you are a recycler. If you use the painting on the front then instead of the calligraphy then you ae also giving a hidden scripture to be found one day.
Neat!!

Your calligraphy is wonderful and I am loving your watercolor girls. The journals with poppies on look great, I think they will sell well.
