Calligraphy Flourish Friday - For Katrina's Sun-Dial

©Jane Farr Calligraphy & Design LLC
Is it Friday already?!  I am meeting myself coming and going this week, so for today's Flourish Friday I am showing a piece I did for an exchange in 2007.  I chose this particular piece because I feel the poetry of Henry Van Dyke may have special significance to a few of you this week.  I hope you like it.

 I usually keep notes of the media, nibs, process, and techniques I have used for client work.  Unfortunately, I didn't do that for this exchange piece.  It's too bad, because I like the background and would like to try it again. I can figure out how I did most of it, but the jagged edge of the background has me stumped.  (Note to self: always take notes!) :)

Go forth and Flourish!


  1. Jane, I always get a little flutter when I see you in my feed reader because I know I'm going to see something breath taking!

  2. Yes-breath taking is right! OMGosh this is stunning, I love the colors-and the quote is one of my favorites. Thank you for the inspiration.

  3. Very pretty piece. I love the colors you used in the background. I also really like the quote :)

  4. The jagged edge makes it look three dimensional, whatever you did it was very effective.

  5. Love the colors and the poem!

    It sounds as if time needs to slow down for you right now. :)


  6. Jane, this is wonderful. I love the background and have always loved this quote. Great job.

  7. Jane,
    This really is a winner, and like you, I'd like to know how you made that background look so dimensional! BTW, your pointed pen is to die for... I often use it to practice with... you know, try to make mine look as lively and interesting as yours. Unfortunately I do not achieve Jane Farr's pointed pen beauty no matter how hard I try!!! :D


I appreciate comments and love to hear from my readers!
