Vanity of the Onion

May 21, 2018

Greetings,  Now that all the audits for my non-profit clients are complete and before I go into summer camp mode, I wanted to update y'all on what I've been working on.  First a recent drawing: 

 I never knew an onion could be so vain.  This particular onion stared at her self-portrait the rest of the night.  This was my second attempt at onion and it turned out better than my first attempt.  I won't show you the first attempt in oil pastels.  

 

The main thing coming out of the studio though is books, books, books, and more books.  Making books checks a lot of my creative boxes.  There's too many to share, but I present the last four.  

Each book shown here is 192 pages, measures 8 1/2" x 7", and are case-bound.  I'm enjoying exploring different papers. The top two are an unidentified hard paper that Michael Lownie handed to me in a moment of de-stash.  The bottom two are rice paper that I embellished.  The rice paper required more care so I treated it like I would fabric and stabilized the paper before gluing it to hard board.

 

Next posts will likely be after my first class of the summer coming in 4 weeks.  Yikes  - I'd better get ready.

 

cheers
