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.
