Calligraphy Flourish Friday - Song of Solomon

Summer is zipping by, isn't it?!
I did this piece several months back, but in honor of wedding season, I thought I'd post it today.
"My beloved in mine, and I am his." Song of Solomon 2:16 (King James Version)
The piece was done with walnut ink on handmade watercolor paper.  I love working with walnut ink.  I buy the crystals from Paper and Ink Arts and then add water. 

A close up.

I hope this past week was a good one for you and wish you a wonderful weekend!


  1. This is just beautiful! And I love the heart shaped paper!

  2. what a gorgeous way to illustrate such beautiful Scripture!! your flourishes always make me smile!!! have a great weekend!! xox, :))

  3. Gorgeous, Jane! I've never seen flourishes done so beautifully in a heart shape. I'm a big fan of the walnut ink crystals, too--often toss a few in when I'm grinding stick ink, which gives it an interesting color (and speeds up the process!).

  4. Jane,
    This is a beautiful piece -- as always. Your work is consistently gorgeous! Just curious about what nib you used?

  5. Love the quote and your lettering is wonderful as always. Love the flourishing. Can't do it but love it! lol I also love the handmade heart, did you make it?

  6. Beautiful, Jane! And one of my favorite verses, too. My husband and I have this verse inscribed in Hebrew on our wedding bands. Has a dual meaning for us. :-)

  7. breathtaking! I can't tell you how much this inspires me. And I love the look of the walnut ink, will have to try that out sometime soon.


I appreciate comments and love to hear from my readers!
