More travelling sketchbook pictures, that is. Form an orderly queue, please…gold coin donations in the jar; all proceeds to a worthy cause*.
Here is Alison’s opening page. Don’t you just love the way the script defines the leaves?
And the page Heather has added; again, with a personal note.
Frankie has “spiced up” her friendship theme in this one!
And now for Heather’s book… this is the front cover.
And the opening spread….
…which, you can see, continues Heather’s thematic workof Aboriginal art.
Leaves, this time, from Frankie…
And now it’s my turn to add to these lovely creations. Ideas bubble up in my head and are pushed aside by other ideas, like the ripples on a pond.
But before I can tackle these books, I have artwork to finish for the exhibition and statements to write. I’m sure there’s something else…oh, yeah! I need to find/create something to wear to opening night. If this cold snap continues the ‘something’ might just be Long Johns and a balaclava. (That’s probably more information than you wanted, right?)
A slightly gruesome footnote: I heard on radio news the other day that someone (a hapless tourist!) had found “human remains” in the local Botanic Garden. Haven’t heard any further details, but I guess I wont go scrambling around there with the Fujica for a while! I wonder what the odds would be on one of those Canadian feet drifting across the Pacific?
I think I need coffee. Or chilli-chocolate. Both? 🙂
But before I head for the percolator let me show you what else arrived in my mail box the other day. All the way from Biarritz, where my delightful blog friend is holidaying.
Picasso is a favourite of mine! Thankyou so much, J.
