Skullcap and Out of Practice


In April, I discovered my first Skullcap.  A delicate mass of blooms upon a single stem.  I snipped the top off of one stem and took it home to sketch.

I was pleased with the sketch and waited (not patiently) for time to add words.

I am saddened that  last week I did not honor the sketch and take my time with the calligraphy.  My spacing is all wrong and the 'P' is totally lost behind the stem and leaf.

I must put the frustration involved with moving aside and get back to my meditative calligraphic self.  I hate when I dishonor the gift of art.
