On a trip to WY at Christmas in 2018 to visit my brother-in-law and his family, I took this photo near the house, and discovered why WY hunters are so successful--the game obey traffic signs.

Just noodling around with this first ink of the calendar--Bliss. Have not yet decided what sort of posts I'll do this time, perhaps practice a script I'd like to improve, we'll see.

Anyway this is a standard ink (no sheen or shimmer or other unusual properties that I see). Reminds me of a very dilute Stargazer from last year, very pretty aqua with a little green. Writes well right out of the bottle with pointed pen if the nib is not ultra sharp and the letters are small. I'm using a Spencerian #1 on Strathmore Bristol smooth 100 lb. The ink bleeds out nicely on the wet paper towel. I'm sure @K-2  will have a better analysis and submission after a bit.

edit:  While typing this post, @K-2  posted-- and a fine post it is. Beautifully done.

I *finally* got all my envelopes in the mail… coming to a mailbox near you soon!  :-*
Mine arrived and it's a beauty. Very nicely done and worth the wait.

The other day I taught a class all about addressing Envelopes. It was really fun and my first zoom class. I decorated the wall behind me with envelopes from previous exchanges and letters. Thought I would share. I love how it turned out.
What a wonderful thing to do. I bet it worked well.

I have written this word so many times and every time I miss a letter.  ;D Actually got into my studio today - with real pen and ink!
This is lovely.

Making up for the last two days too...
Well done. This may be the first time in the history of the English language that those three words have been used in a single sentence.
