@Ken Fraser I love this!  How did you get the bottom of the letters to be black??  I’m not sure how to make such great variations in the color of letters!

In the US, we have 2 major holidays that feature fireworks. - New Year’s Eve & the 4th of July (“Independence Day”).  Fireworks are only sold about 2 weeks or so prior to the holiday.  (In Texas, they can generally only be sold outside of the town’s municipal jurisdiction, or “out of the city limits”.  You can buy everything from “sparklers” (no bang/explosions) to rockets, etc.  The worst part is that it often freaks out pet dogs. - They break out of their yards/pens, etc. & become lost.  It’s crazy & sometimes it takes weeks to get everything all sorted out.  It’s fun for humans. For pets, not so much! 😃

That’s what my friend, Google, said! 😃. We American just call it “New Year’s Eve”!  We celebrate that with dressy parties & music & then pretty & loud fireworks at midnight. At least, around here!  (I’m in the Texas Panhandle!). They may do it differently in others parts of the United States!). I LOVE regional differences! 😃

Ken, that’s gorgeous!  I’m going to ask my friend, Google, about the meaning of “Hogmanay”!  We don’t say that ‘round here! 😃

Very well said, my friend!  The book is brilliant and I hope that I may someday master the techniques from the book!!

I bought the book and have started to work through it!  It’s very, very good, although a bit overwhelming!

@Ken Fraser Good grief, Ken!! What an honor and privilege!  That was a sacred task!  They couldn’t have chosen a better person/scribe!!  I think that you nailed it! Congratulations!

I can’t believe that I’ve been a member for so long!  I feel like I stumbled into Flourish just recently!  I have learned so much from being here!  It has encouraged me on my calligraphy journey! I have made many Flouish friends & I have been privileged to actually meet a few of them in person at calligraphy workshops and at IAMPETH.  I have learned more here at the Forum than at any other meeting or workshop. I thank my many mentors who have helped me improve my script, amateurish as it is!!

Erica, I thank you for your leadership and for creating this marvelous Forum!!

I use an iPhone!  It was terribly expensive!  But, it works great!! 😃. I have an iPhone 11 & it works great!  I have been an iPhone enthusiast for years!  Don’t “fix it” if it ain’t broke!!

I can’t even read 90% of that!  It’s beautiful, but too “ornate” for me!  I love flourishing & I am trying to get better at it!  It’s a process & because my brain is strongly “right brained” (Think words/literature/history, etc.) I have to work hard at flourishing!!
