Literary Calligraphy by Susan Loy

Americana Selections - "SIMPLE GIFTS"
From Shaker Hymn

Simple Gifts 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.

Susan inscribed the text of the Shaker hymn, "Simple Gifts," in two concentric circles in full color, creating a color wheel that represents the gift of color. The text surrounds a traditional Shaker ash splint apple basket filled with deep red Wealthy apples, dark blue blueberries, and blue forget-me-nots, which represent the gifts of fruit and flowers.

Four corner drawings include brown mourning doves, green leaves, red cherries, and blue morning glories, more representatives of simple gifts.
