Finished off yesterday ...




This one for a client

This "M" is for ... can't say, she doesn't know it's coming
so I had better not reveal the name. Later!
For all my illuminated letters I prepare a swatch of the materials as I use them. It is a safety net!  I have quite a few swatches that look terrific. One day I'll mat them all up and frame them.

Thank you gals for lovely comment. You know I enjoy doing these ill-letters :-) while I am doing them but I don't want to do them all the time. I am more of a thoroughly modern gal but some people just love these so I am happy to oblige. Especially when someone pays me for one of them - yippee!
I found a new blog ... let me put it up on the running sheet .... x gb

Beatiful rendering of Owen Jones' Alphabets.

Thank you Fergus. I like Owen Jones' style. I use a variety of his letters often. Sometime I add in a bit of a twist of my own ... to complement one hopes.
