Oh, I just love fonts! I actually had a bit of a tough time with this one but most of it is just the “learning curve” – oh, that darn learning curve!
I drew some scribbly fun colorful blobs with my square pastels (not oil pastels, the other kind…) then blended them together with my fingers (messy!) and then tried to take a photo of it with my smartphone. Bad. Tried to take a photo of it with my good digital camera. Worse. Poor lighting – oh, darn winter! So I braved the cold – yes people – 20 degrees is warm in MN this time of year! – and went outside on the deck with my digital camera to photograph my artwork, which is the background here.
The quote is from the Tao Te Ching, Chapter 4, which I wrote about earlier in the year. The chapters that you read of the Tao Te Ching here on my blog are my own version but we really have to credit Lao Tzu for writing this stuff because he is the master behind the painting of Tao.
P.S. Please feel free to share or PIN any of my quote pieces. The photos on my blog are probably OK to share on Pinterest, but not to use for your own stuff. I bought them on iStockPhoto.com. I don’t use Flickr anymore – just too risky and I don’t want anyone coming back and saying that I stole their work. I know how tough it is for artists out there sometimes.
