In the Barony of Concordia of the Snows, our service award is the Order of the Pine. One of our long time members somehow had not yet been bestowed this award. I was lucky enough to have been able to make the scroll. Deonna has a German persona and is a musician. It was suggested that I use Fraktur – mind you I’m still not a calligrapher but I try – and apparently I made the German script “too angry”. That is hysterical to me because I belong to a German Fighting household. So I found an image to work from which included a really long horn and a flag. That was perfect for incorporating the Pine heraldry. Deonna often wears purple so I made the dress purple. She also had long wavy blonde hair and I got a little creative with how to do that.
The words read: When history is recited one name is spoken again and again. Autocrat of this Musician for that Chatelaine of many. The rings of the Pine grow from the service of others. Long has Mistress Deonna nurtured our growth as such a pine she should be.
I am especially proud of the W and the hair.
