Literary Calligraphy by Susan Loy

Anniversary, Wedding, Romance Selections - "TO MY DEAR AND LOVING HUSBAND"

To My Dear and Loving Husband

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.

In "To My Dear and Loving Husband," America's first woman poet, Anne Bradstreet, celebrates a love that she prizes "more than whole mines of gold," a love that, "rivers cannot quench." Susan Loy has calligraphed the entire poem, incorporating an austere design based on ornate scroll carvings and pillow lace designs common in early American hand crafts.

Twin turtle doves (love and fidelity), nestled in bouquets of wild thyme, share this painting with Colonial sampler- inspired designs that enlace the romantic poem.
