thank you, for your comments there and on all posts... i feel blessed.
this weekend i finally finished covering The Book. this is what it looked like in september when i left for virginia.
and here's what it looks like now. the gorgeous fiber-y ribbon that's holding it closed was part of this package from jacky.
a conglomeration of stuff for sure.
here's a pic from last summer (before it was bound)... the only thing that i added to the inside of the book
are pages made from vellum with feathers between them. the book starts and ends with these 'feather pages'.
thanks again to seth for being the inspiration behind this project! i learned a lot and used some of what i learned when i 'built' the journal i'm using now. pages with pockets for sticking stuff in, for instance. each journal informs the one that follows, that's for sure.
i'd like to say a big "thank you" to a friend and fellow artist for a package that i received last week... this isn't the first time that she's blown me away with a package of art supplies, but the amazement factor was especially high with this one. this time she sent me a big box filled with st. amand watercolor paper in all sizes, textures, and colors.
now you have to understand that i LOVE (insert 5 million exclamation marks here) st. armand watercolor paper, and it's not easy to find. i was beside myself with joy!! and that's a peter beard dvd there - lynne's art nirvana in a box! thank you my friend! oh the journals this paper will make!
now i'd like to pass on some art goodness that was given to me... as you might remember i won issue #5 of 'pasticcio' in a drawing on sarah fishburn's blog; i'd like return sarah's kindness by passing it on to the next person. if you're interested, just leave a comment saying so ~ i'll put everyone's name in a hat and draw a name later in the week.
besides finishing The Book i've been trying to find my groove for a collaborative project that i'm part of. as you can see the art table is full, so there's no room to actually do art on it. i improvised with a giant clipboard that i had stored away. i've since cleaned off the table and started working on smaller pieces. yep, trying to find my groove...
the one and only painting i've done since i posted last...
and what about that moon?!!
