Thyra and Marieta provided commentary on my wording flow as that was my main hang up. . Thankfully the write-up had some good talking points. This is another 5x7 scroll so I tried to keep the wordiness to a minimum while being true to the deeds of the recipient.
This is my first time doing this much rubrications (aka pen doodles). Thyra lent me some of her stash of walnut ink to get the right look of the brown designs.
