I am an avid reader and have a preference for reading books over watching TV although I am a lover of a few well-executed dramas....that are typically based on books. One of my favorite writers is Oscar Wilde. The searing wit that he used with ease is absolutely intoxicating to me. This quote that is credited to him is one of my favorites. So I just had to calligraph this on a mirror.
Most of the time I would say that I practice moderation in life very well. However of course there are those times when caution is thrown to the wind and I just decide to live in the moment and enjoy. It's a balance..... It's interesting that even in calligraphy, we have to find balance. Too much can be ...too much. At times, we calligraphers can place every flourish that we can create into one piece. Sometimes it looks ostentatious. But carefully planned, it can be gorgeous. Like most, I am still finding that balance in my work. However, I am in love with the journey. Cheers!
This mirror is available for sale.
