Our Father


Our Father 
The Lord's Prayer

In the 1990s in my small art room, I would press pansies in phone books and let them dry for a few months. Then, I would arrange them in sprays on different papers using glue sticks. Then, I would calligraphy with the script pen around the floral designs. I loved how the flourishing of the Zanerian Script alphabet harmonized with the shapes of the flowers!

I would execute the delicate lettering with a pointed pen in an oblique pen holder designed after the old quill pen. To learn more about the pen and ink, please see the O satisfy me Art Card story here.

As you can see in the picture above, the pansies have faded over the years. After the calligraphy was finished and the colors were vibrant, I would take the art to Kinkos to make hundreds of colorfast copies. Jonathan Blocher, the founder of Manuscriptures Inc., would mat and frame the copies and sell them with his line of incredible Scripture silk screen prints. My Florals were part of his Comfort and Joy line sold in Christian bookstores across the country.

At Flower Girl Greetings, we have two Our Father Art Cards. They were created in the 1990s along with the other Florals in our Collection. 

Our Father (with pansies and forget-me-not blooms) is sold in a 4-Pack here, and

Our Father (with pansy buds on antique-gold paper) is sold in a 4-Pack here.  (More images are at the end of this post.)

The calligraphy on the front and the text on the back of both Our Father cards is:

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts
as we forgive our debtors.
Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom,
and the power,
and the glory forever.
The Lord’s Prayer, Matthew 6:9-13

Welcome to Shale Fragments, a collection of writings and art for individual and group use!

Teaching God’s truth and the beauty of His Word is my greatest delight! My art card company, Flower Girl Greetings, was launched in 2012 with this purpose. In April 2020, ShaleFragments.com became the gathering place for the writings.

As I have studied the rich meanings of the original Greek and Hebrew languages of the Bible, I continue to see beautiful progressions and connections that compel me to organize and convey their life-changing beauty!
