Book Making

I love making art books and filling them with art. This little book was made with 3 separate sections of mixed-media paper and sewn to a stiff watercolor paper cover. I’ll be adding small watercolor paintings of California Wildflowers.

Sunrise through the trees

Good morning – Yesterday I was experimenting with a straw and blowing the watercolor to develop trees. I chose this one, because I like how the strands of paint made the shapes of branches. The 03 Micron black pen was used to sketch on top of the paint for more dimension and the background is watercolor pencil.

Deviled Eggs

One of my summer time favorites…Deviled Eggs and with a dash of paprika. No runny eggs for me, my eggs must be throughly cooked.
