yay calligraphy practice.

Uncial Capitals – first half of Rumi’s A Community of Spirit – perhaps tomorrow I’ll do the second half, but tonight my arm hurt from this much effort. Really need to work on Ts and Ss. Also Fs. Entirely up for help/critique. I’m playing with a staedtler calligraphy marker and (obviously) graph paper for the sake of practice and trying to remember to keep my letters both straight, even and spaced properly.

I am very jealous of their having this nice big barn to work in. I’m very tempted to make a small studio on wheels in the style of Relax Shacks or Tumbleweed for myself to work in and take with me like a snail.

I added in an aloe that I found at walmart the other day. They seem to be doing quite well, even starting to grow and sprout!
