Life is a stress test.....Original art (#152) from 365 project (year 4)

This is part of a 365 project that I began on Feb 5, 2013! Every day I create one small piece of original art, calligraphy on hand painted paper...4" x 6". There is no planning or drawing of lines....the papers have already been painted (by me)...it is just a one shot deal:) I am currently on my fourth year of creating these daily pieces of art. I post them on Facebook and give them away. If they are not spoken for, then I sell them here:) This one is from year 4! They are a steal at $5 for an original piece of art!

I will put it in an envelope and mail it to you without packaging (to save postage)..but they've always arrived okay. This is the only piece like this, I do not make prints of them. If you have any questions, please convo me.

I am always open to special requests for custom orders. Even if you just want a saying done in calligraphy--and bigger than 5 x 5!
