Hand-Lettered Quote #2 + Print Giveaway!

I've always loved the exuberance of this quote about spring...

8" x 12", drawn with Pitt Artist's pens on Stillman and Birn Beta series paper

I'll change it out for a different quote on my living room wall when autumn rolls around, but while we have an abundance of green things growing, I'm celebrating them!

Right after I finished this artwork, I was commissioned to do an illustrated hand-lettered Bible verse. Since I was given a very tight deadline, I decided to simply modify the border design I had just used for my springtime quote. This time the flowers were customized to include daisies (a favorite of the recipient of the piece) and watercolor was added.
