George, thank you for your encouragement. Do you have any calligraphy or 
similar images you have done that you are willing to share? Would love to 
see some. I set up a blog on the images:

At first I wasn't too sure about doing this sort of stuff (recall that I am 
generally a no-photoshopping type of person), but I think these images look 
nice and have good possibilities. They are also fairly unique, leveraging 
some of my strength...

Thanks again.
