Octavio's Musical Laurel

I'm digging up old photos of pieces I did and attempting to collect them here.

Here is Octavio's Laurel scroll. The original was a page from a medieval antiphonal. It was fun and left a dramatic amount of whitespace on the page. I am still not used to a piece this big being so empty.

To make sure the music notiation was correct on this (as the recipient can read music and I cannot), I lighttabled the notatation up from the original.

The singular illumination on the page, the capital, lent itself wikll to the shape of the laurel wreath and his device fit bvery neatly inside.
