My time as a Book Arts student is officially over as the new semester starts, but I'm armed with the skills of papermaking, letterpress printing, bookbinding, and box making... and about six yards of reeds... to keep me busy for a while! I got lots of projects "started" at school over break (boards cut, box pieces measured and cut, book cloth purchased) so I can spend the next month or so making albums, journals, boxes... ornaments... finishing up cards.
And of course, there's painting, my other other love, which I don't necessarily need a studio to work on (I use acrylics... less toxic than oil). Why, here's one now: (with a nifty watermark)
Have a couple of shows lined up for the spring. So begins the year of attempting to eke out a living as an artist!
