The Serenity Prayer is my choice of poems when I need a quick source of inner strength. Do you know anyone who relies on the words of wisdom in the Serenity Prayer to help them get through difficult moments?
The way I’ve written it in calligraphy brings out it’s sub-meanings as well. Most people focus on “Serenity, Courage and Wisdom”. But when I wrote it out to decide on how best to do the layout, I also found “Accept, Change and Know” as another theme.
Designing a calligraphy poem can be a complex puzzle. The shorter the text, the more opportunity a calligrapher has to use lettering, spacing, fonts, colors and placement to bring out not just the beauty, but the meaning. I love combining calligraphy with artwork. This rendition has beautiful red rose petals. However, if you have a different background that you prefer, I can do a custom calligraphic art piece for you. The price is considerably lower, because the poem is already written in calligraphy and ready to be superimposed upon the artwork of your choice.
I’ve also done two versions, one with “God” and one without. Although this is a very religious country, there are those who prefer the version without using the name of God. So, it’s your choice!
This can be a wonderful gift for someone you care about who is going through hard times. Or it can be just what you need to help you have the “serenity to accept…” Sometimes, that’s all you need!
And it’s also available as a “gallery wrap” with the roses along all the sides. It’s a contemporary way to frame artwork, and ready to hang, right out of the box! Here’s what it looks like. Click to contact me for gallery wrap prices.
