My altered book is about all I have had time to work on this week. I have been creating a new website for my art. These two spreads are not complete yet, but I thought I would share their progress so you can see them develop. I particularly like the black and white one. The paper looks almost as though it is 3D for some reason. And it plays with my eyes. Is it black paper on white or white paper on black? It is, in fact, black on white. I love the power of this spread and can’t wait to get back to work on it. The other spread is delicate. More delicate than any of the other spreads I have done in this book so far. I’m not sure if I am going to try to punch it up more, or leave it soft as a rest for the eyes from the other more colorful pages. I think perhaps it needs some small details to contrast with the larger more prominent shapes. Time will tell.
The sun is shining here in New England today for the first time in days. I got out for a ride on my bike to enjoy it and it was wonderful. Enjoy your weekend everyone!
