my dad's Christmas present

For my dad's gift this year I decided to do a calligraphy of part two of his favorite psalm, Psalm 19. I made part one for his birthday last year.

I had an entirely different idea of what this calligraphy was going to look like when I started, but it simply was not working. I became tired, discouraged, and (I must admit) a little frustrated, so I put it away. When I finally returned to the project just days before Christmas, I just didn't have it in me to continue rehashing the old plan and came up with a new one instead.

I'm very pleased with how it ended up turning out. I love the contrast of the two fonts and was delighted with how perfectly the text fit in the frame.

both of your calligraphy gifts are gorgeous and they are both so uniquely different. I'm sure your parents loved them.
