My abstract piece before this had a darker tone to it and I wanted to change it up with this piece by using lighter and a more colorful tone. I painted on a 12" X 12" studio stretched canvas.
At Watkins Elementary School, Nigel Parkinson, Jr. learned how to write calligraphy back near the early 90's by his Elementary art teacher. Ever since she gave him a calligraphy pen, he has been practicing his calligraphy to perfect his skills. Nigel is a father of two, a seven year old and a two year old. He enjoys playing word games and writing calligraphy with his daughter. Nigel taught calligraphy recently in May 2014, to first graders about and how to do calligraphy. The first graders were very interested in this new take on art and handwriting. Nigel Parkinson, Jr. is happy to take this hobby of his and make into a business, Handwriting with Elegance! Handwriting with Elegance offers products and services. The services includes teaching calligraphy one on one or to a group.
