My Story about Paper


If you've noticed that I haven't posted any 'real paintings' your right. Thats because I have to play with paper for a while. I make small handmade books, different themes, sizes. They're very homemade looking, thats the way I like them. This one is on nature .. its about 3.5" square and still a WIP. I like working with paper, I collect bits and pieces of ephemera, and for this one it was twigs, feathers, natural elements. There is always some watercolors and even handmade paper beads. The lady can't help it. !!! it keeps me 'glued' together ..... End of story. !
