If you want me to draw an initial or to write a text for this Xmas, it’s too late. I just finished the last commission & will not be able to do anything else before Xmas (you can still buy some of my older works 😉 ).

The instructions were a blue R and something about the sea. I looked at some old medieval maps and let my nib ramble on the paper.
gilding & painting of the letter.
