Inspired by Pet Sounds

20140218

I was listening to The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds tonight and was inspired by the song “I Just Wasn’t Made for These Times.” Such a wonderful, fitting song. I think quite a few calligraphers like myself must feel the same, wishing we can get into a time machine and travel back to the Golden Age of Penmanship!

I haven’t really done much watercolor before this – I think the last time I did was in high school, and I wasn’t very good. Years later, after using a brush to write letterforms, I’m finally starting to feel more comfortable painting with it. Now I can say it’s fun rather than frustrating. Why oh why am I always a late bloomer? ;)

I guess I just wasn’t made for these times.
