365 Handmade Books: Painted Songs, Day 79

Painting Complex Emotions . . .

Painted Songs, Book 79
I wanted to keep the exteriors of the books as raw and tactile as the handmade pages and contents of the books.
Covers of Books 78, 79, and 80

During the month of March I experimented with more non-traditional art products to create the designs and textures on the covers.

Materials
1. Handmade papers
2. Dictionary pages
3. Hanji papers from Seoul, Korea
4. Vellum
5. Charbonnel inks
6. Acrylic paints

Binding & Cover
1. Book binding board .087
2. Archival adhesives
3. Non-tradtional art products
4. Linen thread

Techniques
1. Linocuts
2. Paintings
3. Silkscreens

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
