playing with "illumination"

I have never learned to do calligraphy but have always loved illuminated manuscript art, such is found in the Book of Kells and early church books. So I wrote out the lyrics to my favorite hymn and played around with it last night.

I didn't realize until it was finished that the quinacridone gold I chose exactly matches the bookmark ribbon I included in this hand-bound sketchbook.
