“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.” – John Burroughs

Without that possibility I would shrink and be depressed. I'm gonna fight for the right to have a piece of nature close to our neighbourhood.
The politicians want to build 1000 expensive apartments on every flat part of the little forrest. Just where you can enjoy the nature easily - for kids to old people and us in between. We'll be surround of massive apartment building the nearest 15-20 years. So I think it's more important than ever to have a green room close by in the suburb, to be able to handle the stressfull time we live in. Rethink and reload!

So put down the phone, take a walk and enjoy the green room outside. //

I'm thankful for my first calligraphy "commission"! I got the honor to write 25 invitation for a friends daughter Hannah's graduation. The order was Royal blue, black, white and with calligraphy written on. Hannah liked them a lot! 😃🙏🏼

In these times we live in, we have to remember: "You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty." - Mahatma Gandhi

My first post with my attempt trying to write the "Italian Hand". Not so easy to be light handed.

Strange time we live in. These wise words needs to be spoken out loud - again:
"We need leaders not in love with money but in love with justice. Not in love with publicity but in love with humanity." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 1956

1 year ago I started practice pointed pen and this Engrosser's Script with an oblique pen holder. Since then it's been a great journey and a progress, and it's never ending.

The world is more crazier than ever. Found this quote: "Despite all the bad days and mean people, I still believe in good days and kind people. Plus, there are always dogs."
.
Write for charity - is something I been thinking of. If you would like a original sheet of this quote, you can buy it (Paypal/Swish) and I send it to you, and the money goes to help Fapf Hungarys dogs waiting for their foreverhome.🐾❤ Price start at least 8€/8$ including postage Europe/international. PM me!🙏🏼
.
I'm so happy that we have our own dog (since 2 years back) to cuddle with and go out for walks with. Her name is Simba (former FAPF Lambi), 3 years old, and she's a former stray dog from Hungary that we adopted from @FAPF Hungary. She's adorable, we give her a lot of attention and love - she make us smile everyday. She's our furling.💕

This is the Certificate I got the last week in November from my great teammates in @masgrimes Critical Practice in Engrosser's Script. Joan @little_art_suite in Hong Kong made the layout and the headline. Then it thad a very rough travel to Gaby @gm.caligrafia in Mexico and she had to iron away heavy wrinkles and then she wrote the Engrosser's part. The travel from Mexico was rough too and took very long time. Finally it arrived to Sweden several month later and I could roll it out and admire my teams nice work - to me! Then erase the layout lines, iron it and put it under pressure to flat it out for a while. I could then add my name on the 3rd place. Put it under pressure again and Almost forgot it. But here it is! What a challenge, really critical in many ways. It's so cool to hold someone's work in the hand. See every stroke.💖💕🙏🏼 Thank you Joan and Gaby!😘💕

"Please forgive me if I don't talk much at times. It's loud enough in my head."
- A quote that fits me well since a couple of years back. If I'm quiet - that's why. 😉

Now it's one year ago I started to practice calligraphy with pointed pen with an oblique penholder and the script was Engrosser's Script. Since the workshop in Milano with Masterpenman Paul,Pascribe the practice continoued with English Roundhand / Copperplate and straight holder, 5 month now, and it's harder than you think to not get it wobbly. My obliques writing looks better I think.😜 This ink "Iron Throne" changes beautifully from Midnightblue to black during writing. Makes practice more fun! Hard to see and get on video.

Some Christmas letters with the text: "Let every day be Christmas. - Christmas is forever, not for just one day, for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf. The good you do for others is good you do yourself. - by Norman Wesley Brooks, 1976. .

Practice continous trying to get lightness and flow by my hand. X-hight 6,5 mm, with 2mm space between. These sheets has all a bit of structure, most linen, and I've to change nibs to a less catchy one. Then mixing a gold that come of the nib wich pure Pearlex didn't do for me... (Advise anyone?) Added some Schmincke Aqua Bronze Gold powders, water, gum arabic, extra Pearlex powder, shaking a lot. When I got a very god liquidicious gold, smooth writing with, "Murphy" showed up and I accidently tilted it out on the dinnertable of oak... Yeay...😜
