’The Ultimate Green Thought’ was inspired by the words of a poem of the same name by my friend Sue Kindon. It uses words like ‘lasso’, ’tightrope’, 'lifeline’ and ‘rope’ and I designed an alphabet to use to write it out using a continuous stroke, like a coil of rope. I wrote it out using a thin Chinese brush held vertically and a light touch on wet and dry areas of the paper using FW Ink. Text by Sue Kindon and used with permission
