Another Silver Crescent with a quick turnaround needed. The recipient had an Italian persona so I checked my store of print outs for one of my favorite Italian sources.
I spent a good chunk of time on this doing the calligraphy practice. The finished scroll is about 8"x10" since I got a little wordy and wanted to make sure I have the right amount of spacing between the lines.
