Journal Art set to music

This is my first "music video" featuring calligraphy from various journals and the song by Norah Jones called "Those sweet words."



And here is a video of me lettering in our class this summer in Chicago, thanks to Hiroko Shimizu:

Roann, you have amazing talent and thank you so much for your sharing with others. I met you, I think, years ago in Randy Hasson's class. Your work is just beautiful and I have so enjoyed your calligraphy videos.

Roann, simply stunning work as always. You never cease to amaze me with your talent. I love the way you incorporated the music to snippets of color along with the written words. Mastery at its best.

Roann,
Your musical video is beautiful but then I've never seen anything that isn't beautiful when its done by you.
Sincerly,
