and I haven't caught him yet:) This is only my 3rd attempt. I find myself working calligraphy in as a side. I hope to get into celtic eventually .....but you probably know how that is.

Here's the way I started the day today cause everyone else in the household was out of town.

Oh, I especially like the first one! I do a similar hand. What is the name of the first hand?

I like the free and easy style, NOT pityfull full of life.
The first hand looks like a modern version of the everyday cursive hand of the Romans, ie their buisness hand as opposed to their Monumental Capitals, a type of Roman Uncial.
There are many such everyday general usage hands that are very beautifull these existed in parallel to so the called Fine Book hands
