Life Lessons as old as....trees

acrylic on wood panel

Two things that I am strongly interested in are metaphor and hand lettering. I wanted to push my skills in both area's, by starting to create a series of hand lettered "Things to never forget/Life Lessons" on wood. I particularly wanted to push my skills beyond the punk rock scrawl/scratch lettering that I often do for record jackets/posters, and try pushing more ornamental, whimsical, diverse lettering.

This is the first in the series of painted typography I have done.
