This week has been productive for my art, if not for my job. 😉
I created a mini-book for the OWOH giveaway (you can PEEK HERE or enter by leaving a comment on the OWOH giveaway post HERE by Feb 14th) which was lots of fun and got me back in my art studio again. I’m going to make two more mini-books in this series (and one is for me to keep!)
Next, I made this “Book of Home” with photos from my childhood farm in Minnesota as well as a few from my current home in Texas. (I was inspired by a similar book by Laurie Snyder.)
At the near right is the book open, showing the back side with a tree from a field on our family farm. At far right is the front side of the book. Images from top to bottom are: a copper shield; black birds in a tree; my parents looking at the old barn; my mailbox in Texas with icicles; an old photo of my sister, her friend and I walking through the fields; an arial view of Coffee Creek Ranch; and the old barn.
When open, the book is shaped like a house. When closed, the book is shaped like an envelope.
