Hope is the Thing with Feathers


Hope is the thing with feathers. 

I found myself unable to do what I love most for such a long time. To doodle and fiddle. And most of all I missed lettering and writing. My health causes my hands to be too shaky, but yesterday I was determined, and it felt lovely to sit and write. 

I am happy to say I just decided to add it to my shop, too, as a print. I might be able to do more.

  7. I have always admire your Hand lettering and your work. Beautiful !
    I have a silver bangle that has the first line on it, I never take it off.
    I know how you feel when you sit down to do some art. Even just a short time makes one feel so much better.

    Hope you feel better soon.
