These photos show some of Rita's (our host) calligraphy on display in her home. The first one is a table runner, of which only half is shown here. Next, is a quote on her kitchen soffit. And third, a table covering for her husband on Father's Day. Cool stuff, huh?!
Next, we have some great samples by my talented friend Kathy, who attended a class by Louise Grunewald, a calligrapher/artist from Durango, Colorado. (I couldn't find a website for her.) These techniques are really interesting.
Here's a collage painting by Marge. This technique involved torn magazine pages that had the ink rubbed, smeared, or removed with a fluid whose name I can't remember. She then pieced them together to make this landscape picture; sealed it; then lettered over it.
Here's a photo of a practice sheet done by Beth, one of our members who teaches calligraphy at a college in the northwest suburbs. She took a Sheila Waters' class.
Stay tuned for a few more images from Sunday!
