Calligraphic Play after Snow


My calligraphy class was cancelled by emails to the students several hours before class.  My car was covered with an inch of snow an hour before class.  But none of the students got the message, so they all showed up! But not me: I had been sent home an hour earlier.  The goofiness of the situation provided inspiration for this art. White inks, assorted markers and various pencils were used on black paper. Neuland shape letters. Even shiny silver snowflakes punched out of  paper were added at the end of my experimenting fun. Can you put these images in order from unified whole thru separation and development?  Did you notice how flakes blew in from the northeast and piled up?  How the “w” was blown out of position?  Photos only capture some of the qualities that appear in direct light. The sparkle and shimmer don’t show.
