Weidmann's latest word study centers around an idea that has long worn itself in the hearts of wise men and women.

"When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul."
Weidmann gently weaves a sea of script back into the context from which it first transpired. In the 1800's, Horatio Spafford's, "It Is Well With My Soul," was penned while crossing the ocean scene where the lives of his four daughters were lost in a tragic shipwreck. These words, heavy with feeling and brilliant with praise and peace, are well-worn into the souls of many as one of the world's most beloved hymns. In the midst of terrible loss and heartache, we can declare, "it is well, it is well with my soul!"
Sailors of long ago looked to the heavens to find their way on this earth. Though the seas would churn and the winds would blow, the heavens remained their constant guide. Burning stars above would chart their course across tumultuous seas, which threatened to claim their lives. Beyond the stars sailors spoke of a greater force, which they believed kept them safe and guided them home- this was the divine.
A ‘sojourner’ is a traveler who does not stay long in any one place. Whether we are literally traveling across an open sea or simply making our way through life, we are all sojourners. So, within the center of the compass rose is a ship sailing across high seas- a reminder that life brings waves to crash against our hull and test the strength of our vessel.

One of the world's most prolific storytellers, C.S. Lewis, is immersed in his own tale as he encounters the face of Aslan, a most Untamed Lion.
In Deuteronomy (4:24), God describes himself as a Consuming Fire- a jealous God who pursues his people despite their constant rebellion against Him. God our Father is the light in the darkness; a fire burning bright who yearns for a relationship with His creation. He looks away from the viewer to show God’s inability to truly commune with His people in the Old Testament because they were cloaked in sin.
From the burning embers of Weidmann’s imagination, this piece is brought to life through swirling tones of charcoal and graphite. With a reminiscent gaze upon his weathered face, a sailor peers into the smoke of his pipe, recalling his adventures at sea. More than an illusory transition of smoke to sea to man, this piece speaks to the cyclical motion of life: the rough waters that pass beneath you form the person you will become.
I am a professional artist and certified Master Penman in Denver, CO. The youngest in history among twelve existing Masters today, I received my Master Penman certificate from the International Association of Master Penman, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting (IAMPETH) in July of 2011. I work across numerous mediums in art and calligraphy and I am most well known for my use of traditional calligraphic flourishing and hand lettering in the context of my fine art.
Since giving my first talk, I continue to receive numerous comments, messages, and emails from people-- especially students, teachers and parents -- who have shared with me the value they have found in my talk. It has been shared in thousands of classrooms, homeschool co-ops, and handwriting communities around the nation. Thank you all! I believe the reason for the success of this talk has nothing to do with me, but the personal legacy handwriting carries for each individual.
