My Piece for Marie

This is the piece I did for the trade with Marie. (See next post.)

Marie requested this Irish blessing quote, which I thought would go well with the brush lettering and vibrant colors that I've been using lately. I used a rainbow palette because light is made up of these colors.

This piece was done using sumi ink with a pointed brush and Dr. Martin's Radiant Concentrated Watercolors on Arches Text Wove.

The addition of the colour to your lovely brush lettering gives the piece a textural quality. It's visual treat!

Thanks, Jane! And I agree. Marie's purse IS gorgeous. I also have the little girl now framed in a shadowbox right above my desk so I can see her all the time.
