This is a sketch of a palm branch (from a potted palm in my living room) I did February 7, 2008. I did it with colored Sharpies. Then I got the idea in my head that it would look pretty to write the Spanish word for palm by it. I don't do calligraphy, so I copied a font I found somewhere on the Internet. I was going for a casual, handwritten script. I was actually hoping to find an example of the kind of script used by artists to write the names of French cafes in paintings! I couldn't find what I was looking for, so settled for this. I'm not completely sure I like it.
