day 24: so far does he remove

Psalm 103:11-12 (NIV) - "For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us."

Only one week left of this month, how did that happen?? I'm actually getting sort of sad that it's ending soon, because I've enjoyed this first series of my 365 lettering project so much! I wonder if I'll feel like this for every theme I choose... (Probably not, especially as I'm having such a hard time figuring out what to do next.)

Psalm 103 is beautiful; it wasn't easy to pick out only one phrase/verse to letter. I encourage you to read the whole thing if you have a few minutes to spare in your day.

One last random note: Most days I go start to finish on my letterings without any input from Jon, but lately I've consulted him regarding my color choices at the final stage just for a second opinion. I've noticed that I'm usually pretty indecisive/unsure about what color(s) to use, so learning more about color theory and experimenting with color pairings is on my design education to-do list.

So much to learn and to do!
