Latest ATC - Ginko and Uncial

I've been taking an Uncial calligraphy class with John Rafter, through Mount San Antonio College.He's a very thorough instructor and I've learned quite a bit about refining this hand (style) which I've studied off-and-on for years.

For all my ATCs, I'm determined to use mainly on-hand materials. The background here is scrapbook paper, purchased years ago, glued to stock cut from an old rolodex card. The strip of text is snipped from a Japanese novel, layered on top of green and gold pieces cut from scraps of paper. The embellishments are from a package of little self-stick "gems".

Calligraphy Class - Rowland Heights, CA

Exhibit Piece - Imperfect Pear

The Society for Calligraphy has an exhibit, Beyond Words, at Muzeo, in Anaheim, right now. In the past, I've submitted pieces that I had created, but this is the first time I've created a piece specifically for an exhibit.There are a couple things that I want to change/improve, I'm considering this a draft and this fall, I'll create a Final version. I named this Imperfect Pear.
