Literary Calligraphy by Susan Loy

Bird Selections- "MY SYMPHONY"

My Symphony Channing wrote an extended version of this text in a letter to Margaret Fuller in 1841; a version, included in an Arthur Brisbane editorial in the New York Evening Journal in 1920, is the one most often published and the one Susan chose for her text.

William Henry Channing was a Unitarian minister who was chaplain to Congress and friends with Ralph Waldo Emerson. His writings include a biography of his uncle, William Ellery Channing.

Susan hand lettered the text in three concentric circles, surrounding a painting of two common yellowthroats (Geothlypis trichas), perching among common elder (Sambucus canadensis) and common sedge (Carex vulgaris). A geometric border of common cattail (Typha latifolia) surrounds the text and painting in shades of green and brown.
