Literary Calligraphy by Susan Loy

Leaves Selections - "IVY: FRIENDSHIP"

Ivy: Friendship

Susan Loy of Literary Calligraphy in Moneta, VA, joins text from literary classics or Biblical passages with delicate watercolor images and creates a unique bond between fine art and literature.

A line from Ralph Waldo Emerson's essay "Friendship," "I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new," surrounds dark green, glossy ivy leaves that mean friendship in the language of flowers.

The carefully-lettered text and its tiny floral escort move subtly through the color spectrum as they encircle and decorate the ivy sprig. Ivy's association with fidelity and bonds of friendship is due to its habit to hold fast.
