Calligraphy with Flower

Calligraphy with Flower.


This is a Middle English poem / song, written in an Insular script around a painting of a cultivated Ranunculus flower. Some of the ititialĀ  letters are in raised and burnished gold (does not really show much on the web image). It was fun to get back to calligraphy and combining with botanical painting.
