Ink Spills & New Adventures

a corner of my studio on an organized day—light and inspiration

There is a first for everything.  After 23 years of doing calligraphy, I recently had a major ink spill on my studio carpet—my personal Exxon Valdez.  Though my supply cabinet is permanently tattooed with the reminder, I handled the situation with very little "blue smoke" escaping from my lips.
So, in the spirit of firsts and handling the explosive ink with a small amount of grace, I decided perhaps I'm ready to take on another challenge that has been on the back burner for over a year.  Here begins my journey into blogging about my calligraphy work and experiences.  What better name to christen the effort than, "Splatters from the Inkwell"?  Photos, thoughts, discussion, and step-by-step processes about the art I live and love—I hope you check in once in awhile and enjoy it too.
