8×5″ acrylic, ink on sketchbook page

I love this quote. The artist I’m quoting, Ames artist Gretchen Weber, was a calligrapher and maker of artist’s books. She also taught at Iowa State for several years (she died earlier this year). I had brief thoughts of trying to make this piece more calligraphic in her honor, but my brief practice sessions were not enough! So, I stuck with my usual lettering.
