Literary Calligraphy by Susan Loy

Leaves Selections - "A VIRTUOUS RED MAPLE"
Henry David Thoreau

A Virtuous Red Maple

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 tribute to virtuous labor, this print combines a text from Thoreau's journal with a painting of glorious red maple leaves and seeds. The text is an anthem for unsung heroes having a moment to shine; the maple, a metaphor for virtuous labor.

The text is hand-lettered in brown watercolors, surrounding Susan's painting of two red maple leaves, tinged with orange and presenting the full spectrum of red from burgundy to scarlet.
