Lettering at St. Mary’s Catholic Church
In Bethel, Connecticut

Summer of 2020, I was fortunate to be commissioned to letter Micah 6:9 and Luke 10:27 by St. Mary’s Church for their vestibule. Here I am putting down the skeleton of the letters. I will go over the letters twice more, one, to strengthen the red and two, to add a gold highlight.
