Early in 2013, a friend commissioned Serenity. It was her word for the year. I rarely do words in panels especially since Margaret and I started doing collaboration mosaics on slate. I blogged about how I wished it had been a mosaic. But even if the client isn't always right in what would be easiest for me, they do often push us to stretch our limits.
So having been pleased with the results, I imagined one of my favorite words as a panel and Wisdom began to hang out in my studio. The project was interrupted as I cut out numbers for house signs, but gradually it took shape.
