Christmas Card, 2001

After a trying year of personal crises in our family and the disasters of the greater world in 2001, this quote spoke to us as we considered our Christmas text. Not a conventional Christmas quote, but consistent with the Christmas message of hope, I think.

The lettering was done with pointed pen, then scanned and cleaned up in Photoshop. The artwork was done in watercolor and colored pencil. The card stock is by Wasau, called Stardust.

This piece is one of two of mine selected for inclusion in Dr. George Thomson's book Digital Calligraphy, published in spring of 2003 by Watson-Guptill. George's work can be viewed at
