My Road to Practicing Patience

Sunday, May 3, 2015

It has been almost a year, I think, since I started practicing calligraphy. I have always been asked why the need to practice. I kept telling them I just wanted to perfect my handwriting. 

But over the past few weeks, I realized that I wasn't only practicing strokes, I was extending my patience as well. Calligraphy if done in a flash, is I guess okay. But the result isn't great. But when it is done right, without the need to rush, is a beautiful work of art. 

Let me share a few of my work. They are not perfect, but they are a work in progress. These are posted in order from the most recent work I've done.
