In Flight

I’ve been working on a commissioned piece for a client who wanted to share this lovely sentiment in the memory of her son. Sadly, he left this world shortly after he was born, but she is reminded of him every time she sees hummingbirds, dragonflies and butterflies in flight.

I penned a version in pale blue ink, but I am really loving the gold. It’s very subtle yet special. The gold ink is my current favorite, Schmincke’s Calligraphy Gouache in Gold Pearl, which is available at Paper & Ink Arts.

The nib used is a Zebra G, really helpful to be able to write small. The size of the piece is 7″ x 5″, written on Strathmore Art Paper.
