TEXT READS:

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

For as long as he can remember, John has admired meticulous handwriting and was never happy with his own, blaming it on his left-handedness. When his cousin Steve gave him an Osmoroid pen set in 1975, he saw potential. He soon discovered the Zanerian Manual and pointed-pen script. A year later he re-penned the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights.

Requests for wedding invitations and certificates soon followed. In 1980 he began selling prints of his artistic pen-work including at art shows throughout New England and in 1990, wholesale across the country and abroad.

In 1994, John joined IAMPETH (International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers, and Teachers of Handwriting, est. 1949) and was amazed that so many others shared his passion for penmanship. In 1996 he was elected and served as president, and in 2001 was honored to be certified a Master Penman.
