Primer - the A

Tired of only doing small letters, I asked the help of my friend Pascal Aussi to create a primer.
So he selected words that appeared in his songs, and I' m in charge of putting them on the page.
Today, the first letter with the word "Arbre" (Tree).



As usual, the initial is about 2 cm high.

Slate in progress

From time to time, it is necessary to free yourself from paper to work on other media.
So I take back my faithful butter knife and start the engraving of a small slate.
It's only the first step but I already love it.

Alphabet

Small letters are fun for a few years but, after a while, you want to evolve.
So I started a alphabet book using the verses from the poem Hyperion by John Keats.
You are going to tell me that an alphabet book begins with an A and you will be right, but the poem begins with a D, which is why that is what you see here.
I am not very satisfied and it is therefore a draft, in compensation, I show you two small initials very simple but nevertheless pretty.

Me fecit

Because I don't thank her enough for the excellent work she does to highlight my compositions with her frames, because she deserves to be fully associated with my work, I made this little stamp for my wife.



This is of course not enough to account for all the help she gives me (you can imagine that she is not only framing my works) but she will now at least be able to put her signature on the back of the frames.
